Sophie The Yorkie had tough photos

"Sophie"

Sometimes clients will submit a handful of photos that all fall a tad short in some way. You can tell from all of the photos submitted of Sophie that she is an adorable little Yorkie. She is just as cute as a button and unfortunately she is about the size of a button in most of the images submitted. It is important to get up very close to your pets when shooting images for an Art Paw pet portrait. In the final image above we can see Sophie's pretty eyes and I was happy to clone out the hand in this image since the coat was well lit and had plenty of detail. At 176 kb it was a little low in resolution, however it will work fine for the 12 x 12 canvas ordered. I am really having fun with this project and plan to proof later today. I think Sophie is going to turn out really fun.

We do have a couple of great pages on the site with tips for taking good pet photographs:

I love how you get to work with every size of client. She's so tiny, she must appear like a walking snack to some bigger dogs.

I'm telling you, you HAVE to have a workshop on your painting style! I would be the first in line and head right over!
