The pet owners who want to show their affection toward their pet mostly want to have a custom pet painting in their home. To have a good custom dog art, you always need to provide the best photograph to the artist so it can help him or her to create the dog art with all the possible details that must be a part of it. In this article, you will get to learn how you can take a good picture of your pet to customize a custom petportrait of it. We all know taking a picture of your pet is harder than it looks. So here are some tips that can help you take a better picture of your dog:

Know your dog’s personality:

You know your dog better than anyone else. If you capture your dog what loves doing most, you'll get a photo with a little bit more personality and emotion. Play to his hyperactive nature and take his picture doing something he enjoys, like running after a ball or rolling around on his back.

Don't be afraid to bribe your way through it:

Have something that your dog wants in your hand and move it around the lens as you snap away. This distraction will take attention away from the actual camera and make him feel more comfortable in front of the lens. But, don't be a tease. If you use a ball, throw it a time or two in between shots.

Get down on his level:

Taking a photo looking down at your dog gives your shot a human perspective. Instead, kneel to your dog's level to see the world from his angle. You'll get better emotion and fill your photo with a sense of intimacy.

Choose the right location and lighting and context are key:

As with any great photo, look for good lighting and keep your context in mind. Most dogs don't like a flash. Make sure Sparky learns to love the camera by working with good, natural lighting instead. Snap your shot near a window or outdoors. Pay attention to the background as well. You don't want it to be too distracting.


Timing is everything, so the faster you can shoot, the better chance you'll capture a winning action shot of your rowdy pooch. Some digital cameras will let you shoot in full manual mode, which will allow you to play with shutter speed. Or, try a sports mode on your camera. If you're taking pictures on an iPhone, consider using burst mode to score a sequence of shots to pick through.

Get creative, but know your limits:

Do you have the most patient and well-behaved dog ever? As long as your pet enjoys it, test your boundaries. Place your pet next to something funny. But, if your lively friend isn't the best behaved, don't expect him to cooperate when something feels funny on his face or there's food nearby.

Reward your dog for her hard work, too:

Sure, you may have been rolling around with your dog for the past hour to get that beautiful photo but remember your dog’s been working hard, too. Especially if you've bribed her along the way, reward her with whatever it is she loves best. We bet treats or a belly rub will do the trick.
