Your pet photograph does not need to be professionally taken. You just need a camera or smart phone that has at least 10 megapixels.
Hold you camera or smart phone portrait. Take a photo of your pet sitting and facing towards you. Make sure that your pet takes up 70% of the viewfinder without cropping parts of your pet.
TEDDY’S TOP TIP 1
Take your photo at the same eyesight level as you pet. Don’t take your photo looking up, or down on your pet as this will create a distorted illustration of your pet.
TEDDY’S TOP TIP 2
Make sure you pet is evenly lit. If lighting is only one side of your pet and half your pet is hidden behind a dark shadow your illustration will reflect this.
TEDDY’S TOP TIP 3
Ensure that all of your pet is in view and not hiding behind anything. We only illustrate your pet so if there’s something hiding part of your pet in your photograph, this part of your pet will be missing in your illustration.
