1. Use natural light do not use the flash. Photograph your pet next to a white wall if you are indoors this will make the natural light better.
2. Try to get just your pet in the picture. Clutter in the background will take attention away from your pet. If you have a camera that is capable of doing a shallow depth of field, blur the background.
3. Treats work. Position the treat on or near the camera.
4. Shoot from the level of what your pet sees. This will make the field of view more natural
5. If your dog likes squeaky toys you can use one to get their attention so they make eye contact. A laser pointer or fishing line toy works for cats.
We love your pet as much as you do! Post a photo on our facebook page!
