5 Ways to Take a Pawsome Pet Portrait this Christmas

5 Ways to Take a Pawsome Pet Portrait This Christmas Christmas wouldn't be Christmas without some festive photos of your pets. Whether you're looking for the perfect Christmas card portrait or just some seasonal snaps for the family album, these tips from Transform Your Images will can help you capture the very best pictures of your Little Elves! 1 Be Merry and Bright Always try to take photos of your pet in bright, natural light or a very well-lit space. Camera flashes can not only cause red-eye but also scare your pet, so it's not at all recommended to use them! If the weather allows, head outside into leafy woodland or a snowy field to make your photos sparkle. Deck the Howls Will your pet be dressing as Santa Paws, Mrs. Claws, or Frosty the Snow-turtle? While some pets will patiently rock a Christmassy costume, others simply won't abide them. If your pet falls into the latter category, don't force them into an outfit or you'll have one unhappy Little Helper in your Christmas snaps! Dashing Through the Snow One way to make your pet's Christmas snaps really fun is to play with them! Have them run past or towards the camera, leap for a treat, chase a ball or roll over. You'll capture your pet's personality more when they're relaxed and at play, and they won't even realise they're striking a pose. A macro lens or setting on your camera will help you to get close-up shots from any distance. Prop Around the Christmas Tree Set the scene for a fabulous festive portrait with plenty of props. Even your goldfish tank can become a winter wonderland with a little tinsel (on the outside) or a Christmassy ornament. Props like wreaths, lights, reindeer ears, trees and snowmen are also ideal for taking photos with pets who despise costumes - but keep an eye on those plastic candy canes or Rover may bury them in the garden. Bark, the Herald Angels Sing Capture your pet's attention for the photos by using gentle noises like bells or rustling paper, rather than squeaky toys which can be startling to their sensitive ears. Remember that the more relaxed your pet is, the better your photos will be. If your pet is ready for its close up, why not submit your festive photo to Transform Your Images for a chance to win a piece of personalised art for every season in 2015.
