Pets can be like part of the family for many people and their cute and lovable antics make for great photos. But it’s not as easy as it looks to create good animal portraits so we’ve put together a list of tips to help you improve your pet photos.
Your pet won’t understand what you’re trying to do and therefore won’t pose calmly for a portrait. Be willing to wait and know that it will probably take several extra shots to get an image you like.
Focus on their eyes and facial expressions for captivating portraits.
By using natural light you will avoid red-eye. Aside from that, the use of a flash can scare your pet and make the whole experience unpleasant for them.
For some pets, a special treat or toy will mean that they’ll be willing to do whatever you like plus, it will make it more fun for them if there's a reward involved.
Is your pet playful, cuddly, lazy, grumpy? Take photos that demonstrate who they are. For example, show them playing fetch, if that's their favorite activity, or napping in their favorite spot.
Many people take photos of their animals while looking down on them and while that can be okay, when you get down on their level you’ll see things from their perspective and get more original shots.
Pick a location where your pet is comfortable so that they're more relaxed. But don't forget to check that the background is not cluttered or distracting.
