TIPS ON PHOTOGRAPHY
~ Take a quality photo with good lighting. It will make it easier for me to catch all the details for your finished painting.
~ If the eyes have a "flash" glare in the photo you like best for the painting, take a few close ups of the eyes for reference.
~ Please let me know your favorite pose if you send several photos.
~ Originals Photos will be returned. Photos can be sent as an e-mail attachment.
~ Have a helper hold your pet on a leash, outside in sunlight
~ Have the sun on your pet, behind the camera, but not in the pet's eyes
~ Sit on the ground at eye level 5-6 feet away
~ The photographer should hold treats or favorite toy to get your pets ears up and alert look.
~ Take a few close ups of your pet. If there are multiple pets, please take a few photos of pets together to show size variance.
~ What can I say, you are at their mercy. Keep a camera close at hand. It is best to let them be themselves and wait until they are in a nice relaxed moment.
~If you're not in a fully lit area, be sure to use a flash.
