Family pets quickly fill a special place in our hearts. They bring us warmth and love. We want a good picture of them to remind us how much we cherish them. But unlike humans, pets aren’t aware of what is going on while doing a photoshoot, so do not expect them to pose in front of the camera. Here are some helpful tips on how to get great photos of your pets.
Get on their level
These tips will make photographing your pet a little easier. Use natural lighting whenever possible. Avoid using a flash as that will cause red eye and disturb your animal. Another tip is to take the photos at their eye level or below. That way you will show how they see the world.
Showcase their personality
Also, you should bring out the character of your pet. If it loves to relax; then take a photo of it lying on the couch, in front of the fireplace, or on the bed.
If it enjoys being active, take a few shots of it playing. Take a few photos when it looks excited or alert. This will be the most difficult shot to capture but will display the true character of your pet. A tip to get it to look alert is to let it play and get carried away with the game. Once it is deep in the game, have everything at the ready, and assign a family member to call your pet’s name. When it snaps out of play mode and focuses on whoever is calling it, be ready with your camera. Remember that moment will only last a few seconds.
Create hangable art
Now you have numerous photos. They aren't doing any good sitting on your phone, tablet or computer. it's time to turn the best ones into art. The next thing to do is to create canvas prints of your pet that every animal lover will be sure to appreciate.
