As the world continues to adjust to lockdown, it can be easy to let hobbies slip by the wayside. However, even if your favorite photography genres usually involve going outside, there are still plenty of home photography ideas that you can have fun with indoors. One of our favorites is capturing pet portraits – not only do you get to flex your creative muscles, but you also get to capture a beautiful memento of your furry best friend.

Most of us love taking and seeing photos of pets, even if we don’t have them ourselves. Pet portraits have come on in leaps and bounds in recent years, and even if you’re not a professional looking to make a living from snapping other people’s adorable furry companions, there are many ways you can improve your own photos of your pets.
