Tips & Tricks

1. Encourage your pets to look right into the camera to show off their eyes and personality

    •  Try holding a treat or toy next to your camera to get their attention

2. Pets photograph best in bright, natural light

    •  If taking a photo indoors, try putting your pet by a window or turn on a few extra lights (even during the day!)

3. Portraits of pets sitting, standing, or lying down are usually the easiest and most successful photos

    •  “Action shots” are often blurry and take a lot of extra time to get “just right”

4. Share photos just as they come out of your camera or phone

    •  Editing photos, changing sizes, or creating collages limits how they can be used on different social media sites
