1st

I will confirm that I understand your request and confirm suitability of your reference image. This may take one or two emails

 

Reference photographs guide

I need to receive good quality photographs or images for the best result. Photographs in natural light and good resolution are best. If you do not have these, for example, a deceased pet, then I am happy to do my best with what you send.

When photographing pets, you may wish to be down at eye-level, in even or natural light. Be aware of the “emotion” your pet might show. For example, an alert or happy dog makes for a stronger portrait than a demure or timid pose, such as a scared dog. If your pet does not like being photographed, try to distract it with a treat.

As I work in graphite, I may choose to enhance and convert your images to grayscale for my reference.
