Finding The Purrfect Picture
When looking through your pictures and albums of your loved ones and pets, or taking a new picture yourself, there are a few key things to consider:
💡 Good Lighting – is your picture light enough to see your pet?
👀 True eye colour – does the picture show the true eye colour of your pet?
🐕 True fur colour – does the picture show the true fur colour of your pet?
🐈 Visible fur direction – can you see the fur in detail?
🤳 A good distance from the camera – is your pet too far away and hard to see? Here is an example of a bad picture vs a good picture.
Here you can see the difference between a very good quality photo and a very blurry photo.
If you are having trouble choosing a reference picture of your pet then please feel free to send me a selection and we can discuss together which would be good for creating your custom pet portrait.
😥 Pets That Have Passed Away
If you are looking at commissioning a portrait of a pet that has sadly passed away I understand you may have limited photos available, but please don't worry - send me as many photos as you can and we can work through them together. I will need to see photos of pets that have passed before I accept your commission, so I can check I can work from your photos.
