Getting That Dog Photo...

SUMMARY: ...All that work, and still nothing I really like.
Thanks, Lisa, for the photo of me.

And between crouching, kneeling, sitting, and lying on the ground, here's what I ended up being able to choose from before the rest of the crew was ready to go (and this is after I deleted the out-of-focus ones and really badly composed ones). BTW, the reason the dogs' feet are cut off in some and they're a little crooked is because Boost won't make eye contact with the camera but she will make eye contact with me. So for a while I tried looking through the camera to aim it, then moving my head without moving the camera to get her to look my way.


  1. Interesting. Katie looks away a lot when I get the camera out too. I always thought she thought just about everything else was more interesting then me with my camera. Maybe actually it's more a don't want to look at mom with that "THING" on her face!

  2. I'm not sure whether it's that or whether to her it's just an object that I'm hiding behind so what's the point in looking? Dog brains, who knows.

  3. Posed dog photos are hard! Strummer gets bored and irritated very quickly when I make him pose while we're hiking and the photos show it. He looks like a cranky little kid.

  4. hehe, dog pictures are super hard. I want to get a video of my dogs all doing 'shake' at the same time... well not all my dogs, but maybe 4 of them at once. LOL

  5. Now there is a challenge... Fun to see all the results.
