Best Pet Portraits Ever: DIY Backdrops + Strategic Angles

Did you know cats spend 73% of their lives lying down? (That’s what we guesstimate at least.)

So if your cat – or dog, ferret or snake – spends its days lolling about your living room floor, why not turn that unused energy into creative ambition?

Theresa did. While others might’ve merely seen a cat sprawled on the ground, Theresa saw pure photographic potential.

Scissors and paper were all Theresa needed to create a fanciful underwater backdrop. Angling her camera from above, she was able to capture the best pet portrait ever: a scuba scene starring her beloved cat.

With what started as one incredible photo quickly turned into a whole new way of capturing her cat on camera.

Soon enough, her cat went form the laziest feline on the block to a balloon-wrangling, umbrella-dancing wonder.

Sure, Theresa’s cat was probably knocked out in half the shots, but if babies and kids can have dreams, pets can, too.
