Photographing your pet
It's best to photograph your pet in natural light using a good camera that can capture clear high resolution photos. Avoid using the flash if possible. Sunlight is great for highlighting natural colors and movement in the fur, but also try to avoid over-exposed areas that may occur in direct sunlight.
Try to get as close as possible and photograph them at their eye level to avoid distortion. Use burst mode if available to capture a range of photos from which to choose the best representation of your pet's personality.
