How to make a perfect pet photo

The quality of a photo you upload is essential. Ensure your pet is in the best position — shoot it while it’s sitting (not lying or cuddling even though it’s so cute) with a head is up and a focus on its eyes. More requirements are below.

Find a place where the light is the best

Dark rooms and rainy or cloudy weather aren’t the best settings to take a photo of your pet. Avoid shadows on the pet’s face. Choose bright lighting or natural daylight to let your camera capture all the minor details.


We need your pet’s ears and cheeks visible

Try to catch all facial details. The best trick to do it — kneel before your majesty if it sits on the ground to place a camera in front of the pet’s eyes. Use all your flexibility and stretching skills to catch a perfect shot.


Give anything for a close-up view photo

It’s vital to make a quality photo. The minimal requirements to the picture — it has to be in a high resolution without a blur. We need a close-up view of eyes, ears, fur, whiskers, feathers, and other unique details of your pet.


Make sure that colors are realistic

To correctly capture your pet’s appearance features, we need to see it in color. Ensure that bad lighting doesn’t affect the body shape or color of the fur. We need the best natural view of your pet — so do your best for one excellent picture.


A few more tips

We know that your lovely little buddy is an unpredictable creature that rarely wants to play by your rules. So follow these four little tricks to turn photo shooting into a fun experience for your future custom pet painting.


Think about the motivation for a pet to pay attention to you. It can be a favorite or a new toy, treats to encourage good behavior.


Your pet feels your stress. If you’re anxious, your pet will be anxious too and give you flattened ears and concerned eyes. Don’t force. Take your time until both of you will be relaxed to have fun with it.

Be quiet

Don’t confuse your pet by repeatedly barking commands at it. Dogs will become stressed, and cats will lose their interest or even leave a room. Use a command once or twice if needed with a calm voice. Otherwise, use non-verbal signals and hands signs your pet understands.

Move slowly

Imagine that you’re a professional photographer, and your pet is a supermodel. If you need to shift position while shooting — do it slowly, especially with cats, since they are easily distracted by any noise or movement and are prone to change their perfect positioning radically.

But don’t forget — it’s all for fun without pressure!
