The latest “Today at Apple” video just hit YouTube, showing iPhone owners how to snap stunning Portrait photos of their pets. The tutorial features tips from award-winning photographer and animal advocate Sophie Gamand.

Apple’s Today at Apple session videos have been teaching iPhone and iPad users how to make the most of the latest features on their devices. They’re designed to inspire creativity in photography, art, music, and more.

Earlier this week, Apple and New York City photographer Mark Clennon taught us how to take great Portrait photos of people. Now Cupertino has teamed up with Sophie Gamand to highlight Portrait photo tips for pets.

Take awesome Portrait photos of your pets

The 10-minute video shows you how you can improve your pet portraits by getting down to their level, tuning into your animal’s energy, and bringing out their personality using different accessories.

It also highlights some Camera app features — like the grid overlay, focus locking, and zoom — that can help you capture the perfect pet masterpiece. Check it out:

This is the fifth Today at Apple session available on YouTube. You previously had to attend Apple Store events for tutorials like this one, but when they all closed during the COVID-19 outbreak, Apple brought the sessions online.

Previous videos have helped users draw themselves as Peanut characters using iPad and Apple Pencil, create looped videos with the Clips app, and capture better Night mode photos on iPhone.
