It can be challenging to take good photos of pets with black fur, but there is no such thing as an un-photogenic pet. These tips will help you capture your raven-haired beauty’s best side.
Staged Setting- Choose light colored background, avoiding stark white and dark backdrops.
Soft Lighting- Bright lights wash your cat out, and they’ll only disappear in the dark.
Tight Focus- Your cat’s expression should be the focal point, not the surrounding clutter.
Creative Approach- Try out different colors, lighting and angles to find the rest combination.
Bonus Tip: Use photo editing software to brighten and sharpen photos.
