How to get a portrait
Poor quality photos can be difficult for me to work from because they distort colors, lighting, and details. Poor photos are blurry, pixelated, too dark, too exposed, taken too far away, too close. Or just don't have clear details. If you are unsure about your photo, just Email me it and I will let you know.
Pet Photography Tips:
There are 5 main key photograph qualities that when combined normally result in great reference photos. Try to remember to consider all 5 when taking photographs of your pet.
Good Quality Photos
This dog is still for the camera which helps make the photo clear and sharp
This photo was taken at a good distance so there is a lot of detail
These dogs are a perfect distance away from the camera to get a full body photo but still see all the fur detail
This photo is a good distance as I can see a lot of detail and make a more intricate drawing
This photo is fun and colourful. With sunlight and a lot of textures and details
Even if you can't get a photo outside, as long as the photo is bight enough for me to see details, I should be able to work from it
Bad Quality Photos
The photo was taken without good lighting. The dog’s fur color is hard to distinguish because it is shadowed.
The lighting is too yellow and therefore makes the dogs fur not true to life in colour
The flash was on and the camera was too close to the cat and therefore makes it too exposed
The photo was taken while the pet was moving so details are blurry.
Photo taken of a photo on a computer screen
The photo was taken too close to the cat. It blurs the details and distorts the proportions in its face.
The dog is further away and moving so the photo isn't detailed enough
The dog is far from the camera so when I zoom into see the dogs detail, it becomes pixelated
