Tips for Taking a “Calendar Worthy” Picture
  • Get your pet to look at the camera, preferably at eye level.
  • Try to shoot in natural light instead of relying on your flash.
  • Avoid heavily cluttered backgrounds; you want the focus to be your pet.
  • Beware of shooting in direct sunlight as it increases shadows.
  • If your pet is dark colored, take the photo in front of a lighter background.
  • If your pet is light colored, take the photo in front of a darker background.
