To create a portrait of your pet, I’ll require some good quality reference photos to work from. I want to make sure that your finished portrait is the best it can be, and that it accurately reflects your pet’s unique personality. Choosing the right photos for me to work from is a key ingredient to achieving this. There are several factors that need to be considered when choosing reference photos of your pet. First and foremost, they need to reflect your pet’s personality and portray them in the way you love best. Smart phones are absolutely fine to use. Do not use flash! Lighting is one of the most important factors when photographing your pet. Images that are too dark or overexposed make it very difficult for me to see all those little details. Try to take photos outside as this will allow me to see the true colors of your pet’s fur and eyes. Interior lighting can sometimes alter how colors appear, so either take photos outside, or close to a good source of natural light like a large window. Try to fill the camera frame with the head and shoulders, or close up rather than farther away. Also, bend down or sit on the ground to shoot at their level so they are not looking up at you. Do not worry about getting the background. Finally, make sure the camera is focused. In particular, make sure the eyes and direction of fur can be clearly seen. If there are aspects of your chosen photo that you’d prefer me to leave out of your portrait, please just let me know. It’s usually possible for me to remove collars, harnesses, halters, leads and name tags if you wish
