Awesome Ideas for Pet Portraits

Are you ready to capture some fun and creative photos of your dog? 
Do you want to do this yourself, rather than hiring a pro?
If so, there are several ways you can create amazing shots that are truly unique. 
Keep reading for some of the best ideas out there.

Add Clipart to the Photo

While capturing a photo of your pet isn’t difficult, if they are just sitting there, it can 
be a bit dull and boring. Don’t worry. There’s a quick and easy way to liven any 
picture up. One of the best ways to do this is with clipart. Clipart is a collection of images 
or pictures that can be used on a document – like the picture of your pet. These 
images are usually made out of raster or vector graphics. You can find clipart 
galleries with hundreds or even thousands of images, and many are free to use. 
This is going to let you quickly add a bit of fun and whimsy to any pet picture you have.

Create a Pet Portrait

Don’t worry, there’s no need to grab paint and canvas to create the perfect pet portrait. 
You can check out Instapainting, where you can get a picture of your pet (or something 
else) turned into an amazing and unique portrait. Keep in mind, though, both of the 
portrait ideas above mean that you first have to capture the perfect picture. Some 
ideas to get that one-of-a-kind shot are found here.

The “Run to Me” Shot

Crazy eyes, long flapping tongues, and flying ears are hilarious and a great way 
to capture the spirit and personality of your dog. To get this shot, you need to get 
outdoors and ensure there is plenty of natural light. Set your camera to use a fast 
shutter speed, or if possible, a sports mode. Get on ground level so that you are eye 
level with your pup. Have your dog run right at you to capture the shot. It may be a 
good idea to have someone help you with this, as they can release the dog at the 
right time or even throw a ball to get the pup pointed in the right direction.

Play with Your Pup

Most dogs are always ready to play. Why not capture these fun moments with your 
camera? Again, if you want a great action shot, be sure there is plenty of light and use 
the same fast shutter speed you did above. You can choose to shoot from a distance 
and capture what they are doing or get up close with a wide-angle while engaging with 
the dog. Most dogs don’t require too much encouragement to play and being able to 
capture the expressions of pure joy is going to create an amazing picture. While you 
may have to take a lot of pictures to capture that perfect shot, it will be worth it when 
you walk away with the picture you were trying to get, and a happy pup.

The Puppy Dog Eyes Shot

For this picture, try to find a plain background, such as wood decking, tiles, pebbles, 
or grass. Face your dog toward the light so their face is lit evenly. Make sure you 
have your dog’s attention and try to keep it by showing treats or their favourite toy 
near your camera. Look down the barrel at your dog and try to focus on the eyes, 
rather than the nose, for the desired look.

Capturing Your Pup with the Perfect Picture

The tips here are going to help you get that amazing shot you were looking for. 
Be sure to take advantage of clipart, portrait services, and some of the “action” 
shots found here to get amazing photos you will be proud to show off.


Winter is one of the best month of the year. Thanks for sharing and keep it up. Cheers!
