PHOTO GUIDELINES. PLEASE READ:
Quality of photos supplied to me is ESSENTIAL. High resolution, in focus, well lit pictures taken OUTDOORS in good light but not direct sunlight and on the PET'S EYE-LEVEL are needed. Artificial light does not show the true colours of your pet's fur.
The subject should be the main feature of the photo, the eyes are very important in order for me to add that spark of life to the portrait. The photo should show a high level of detail in the fur and in the eyes. Outdoors in clear daylight but not strong sunlight shows the true colours of the fur and great reflections in the eyes.
Get down to the subject's eye level, as you would for a child. Head and neck portraits on a plain background usually make the most striking portraits. If its not a large pet it might be a good idea to have someone hold it while you take the photos.i can remove any unnecessary details.
The better the quality of photos the more details I can include.
The best way to send photos to me is directly from your phone to either my facebook page via a private message or via Whatsapp (i will provide my number) this way the photos remain uncompressed and retain all their details.
For cartoons the same applies,and I also need as many details as possible on the pet's (and humans) personalities/interests and an idea of what scene you’d like to see.The more imaginative input you can provide me ,the more fun the end result will be!
Bad photo example.Subject is being looked down upon. Photo taken indoors.Bad lighting.
Good photo example .Subject is on eye-level.Good pose.Good natural light.
Excellent photo example. subject is close and well lit by natural light . Details in fur can be seen and eyes are clear and have perfect reflections.
