One of the most popular ideas for cheap canvas prints is to take some fun photos of beloved family pets. Pets bring not only joy and love into our homes, but also a sense of fun and innocent enjoyment, and they often make fantastic subjects of a photo on canvas for your wall art.
But as anyone who has ever tried to take a photo of a pet knows, it’s often difficult to capture their personality, or to compose a photo that’s visually interesting and exciting. Pets don’t know how to cooperate, and even the best-trained pet can sometimes choose the moment you’re pointing a camera at them to sit still and stare at you like you’re crazy.
So how can you get better pet photos? Here are some crazy ideas that just might work.
Pet Photo on Canvas Idea #1: Webcams
One of the problems with taking photos of your pets is the fact that your animals are much attuned to you. They don’t know what a camera is, but they know that when you walk into the room holding some object, your behaviour is different. Your posture, tone of voice, and movements are strange and possibly alarming or exciting to them. As a result like magic when you have a camera or phone in your hand and start cooing at them to hold that funny pose, they immediately do exactly the opposite, trying to figure out what’s going on.
So, one way to solve this problem is to remove yourself from the equation. Setting up some cheap webcams (https://mobiscope.com/pet-monitor) can not only increase security around the house and allow you to be entertained from work by the antics of your pets, but can also allow you to get all of their adventures on film. While not all the footage will be of good-enough quality to make into a photo on canvas some will – and you’ll definitely get some shots you wouldn’t otherwise!
Pet Photo on Canvas Idea #2: Remote Control
Another great idea is to mount your camera onto something remote-controlled, like a kid’s remote-controlled car toy, and install an App that allows for remote photo-taking or timed incremental shots. Then send the car into action. Your pets may be alarmed at first, but they’ll get used to it and start to play with it – and if they do run and hide your little remote-control camera will be able to follow them!
If you deploy the remote camera often enough your animals will eventually think nothing of it, and you’ll be able to follow them and get some really interesting up-close shots.
Pet Photo on Canvas Idea #3: Collar Cams
Finally, this idea won’t get you photos of your pet per se, but can get you some truly remarkable photos for the cheap canvas prints treatment. A camera attached to the pet – on their collar or some other way – that snaps photos on a regular basis travels with your pet all day. Whatever they get up to, in to, or down with, you’ll get a snapshot. At the end, you’ll have a fascinating record of what they do all day, and some photos that might just be the most interesting you’ve ever taken.
