Deciding on the right photo to create an interesting art product
We know from this photo, the owner is a Steeler’s fan. Interesting as I know the owner lives in Carolina!
This is a great photo and tells an interesting story of the owner,
most pet photos tell us a few interesting characteristics of the
owner and would be a great photo for the artist to convey to
the owner and his friends the story behind the photo. Maybe displayed in his or her office or sent to a friend in Carolina!
Ask three questions in deciding on the photo and have a few ready to send.
1. Who is the audience? Your family, relative, business partner?
2. What is the story behind the photo?
3. Does the photo give you the opportunity to have an artistic
representation of the subject?
These photos have been sent to reproduce by the pet owners…..What is their story?
We know by this photo, they had a long training day as they are resting in the owners “Ducks Unlimited” bag. How long will it be before their training days are over and they are ready to catch them there “Ducks”? The photo with the eyes closed gives the artist a great opportunity in knowing the customer would be happy with the results. The opportunity for photographs into art will be what they do when they wake up!
This photo has some great opportunities for the artist and the challenge will be the hair…….. What a lot of HAIR!
Where is the owner? Is he or she returning from a long trip out of town? Are they arriving in a bus? A train? Did they get of a plan and the dog is waiting patiently to return the owner back home safely? The artist may think about a different background or maybe just the bench and dog. Maybe a few extra photos of the head with both eyes would make an dynamic art piece. When photographing your pet shoot extra photos of the surrounding area, keep the eyes in focus and shot a few different angles. The artist with the software available can create different concepts of the final product.
