Small dogs "center photo" can be put on a table for more eye level view. Soft cloths make for a good base. Head and shoulders best not square onto camera as two outside images above show. Best angle is eye level or slightly above eye level so get down to your dogs eye level. Not always easy to do so don't be afraid to do a lot of pictures. Most people now are using cell phones so do use a bit of zoom as that will prevent distortion and if possible use a camera. Again if using a camera, no wide angle lenses and please shoot at high resolution. Images need to as clear and sharp as possible so details can be seen.
Once an image has been agreed upon the size needs to be determined in which price will be determined by the longest dimension in the photo. That is because Linda doesn't like working with standard crops as images may look better cropped tighter or looser. Regardless of the crop clients will be quoted on the longest dimension. Such as 16X20 the image will always have one side 20"s but the second dimension could be different to enhance the image to a custom crop. She learned long ago that her image charges are based on her talent and not
on the square inches of a photograph.
The above images though done by Linda are for example only and not client images
