Photography tips: How to get a good photograph for your portrait.

The basis of a good pet portrait is a good photograph. Below are some simple tips for taking a qualtity picture.

  • Set your digital camera to high quality image (300 dpi)
  •  

  • Photograph outdoors if possible, in good light conditions, without flash. A clear day is much better than strong sunlight. If you can’t get outside, try to position the pet near a window for as much natural daylight as possible, but not in direct sunlight.

  • Try to get down to their eye level because the detail in the eyes is really important! With small animals, get someone to pick them up and hold them in position.
