Important reference photo tips:
- High resolution clear in focus photos
- Take in natural daylight if possible, to avoid red-eye and distortion of coat colour
- Do not crop the photo
- Make sure the eyes are clearly visible – these bring the portrait to life
- Avoid zooming this will pixelate
- If using a phone or camera – no filters applied that will affect the natural colours.
- Separate photographs for more than one subject is fine
Why is all of this important?
The quality and clarity of reference photos is the most important aspect of pet portraiture.
