When choosing and taking new photos of your pet there are a few essential things to consider.
Good lighting is really important to help capture as much detail as possible. It is always best to use soft natural light if possible, as this gives a nice even light with fewer shadows. Try to avoid using the flash or really bright direct sunlight, this can create harsh shadows and cause your pet to squint. We want to see nice bright eyes!
Position your dog near a window facing outside towards the direction of the light.
Angle your camera so that it is at the same level as your dogs chest.
