One of the most important things to have when photographing your pet is patience. Be patient with your camera, be patient with your pet, and be patient with your skill level. All new hobbies take time to learn. If you're frustrated, your furbaby will pick up on that energy and will inevitably feel less comfortable in front of the camera.
As they say, the eyes are the windows to the soul. To get a shot that really connects with the viewer, make sure your pet's eyes are in focus. If your camera has the option, use the eye-detection feature or manually select the focus point over Fluffy’s eyes.
To achieve a lovely, artistic shot of your pet, be aware of what surrounds your furbaby. This sounds like a no-brainer, but a bad background can ruin an otherwise great shot. Are there distracting colors or elements? Is there anything that takes your eye away from your furry friend? Is there a pole or tree coming out of his or her head? Pro Tip: It's easier to change your shooting angle than to move your pet.
