Wait For It!
The quality of your photo affects the quality of your photo-art. There are some things you just can't fix...and blurry is one of those things.
When it comes to wildlife, it's very easy to think "I'll never see this again!". And you may not. However, if you're at a place where you go frequently, here's something to remember: Wild animals and birds are creatures of habit. If they come out in one location once, there's a very good chance they'll come out there again. If you feed birds and draw wildlife onto your property, they will surely come again, too.
My point in this video is to really think about the art you want to create and to use the best photo you can for your work. If you got a shot but it's not "great", then wait for it...keep trying...eventually you may just get that better shot, and THEN do the art. :)
In the video below, I take you through my photos from two separate shooting opportunities with the same fawn, and then I complete my final image with textures and resources from The Farmhouse Collection.

Use these textures "as is" to add a painterly feel to your photographs by placing them on a layer under your subject and masking away the subject's original background. Using your transform tool in your software, you can stretch them and position them exactly where you need them for your art. You can also use these textures as overlay layers to enhance existing photos or to add unique color tones throughout your artistic images. These also make wonderful beginning backgrounds for your digital paintings!
