Photo tips for Pet Portraits
Good quality and composition photos of your pet are vital for a good pet portrait to be painted. Here are a few helpful tips when taking photos.
Take photos in in natural daylight but not in direct sunlight.
Avoid dark shadows as the detail cannot be seen in the photo.
Avoid taking a photo of say a dog or cat looking down at the animal.
Wherever possible, take photos at the same level of the animal. For smaller animals sometimes placing them of a outside table or similar brings the animal up to your level and thus making the process easy.
Take a selection of photos if you can e.g 15 to 25 photos.
Wherever possible attempt to capture in the photos the character of the animal or bird. Achieve a photo which is exactly what you would like the painting to look like.
Your commissioned painting is created from the photographs supplied and I reserve the right to reject photos that are not suitable.
