Ever ReadyPublished November 16, 2007
I recently did a little modeling session with my client Casey, the five-month-old cockapoo. Isn’t she puppy perfection? I waited until the end of our lesson to take the shots, and I fully expected that the mentally and physically taxing hour of training would render her tired enough to allow me to snap the world’s most perfect photo of her. During our lesson (#4 of 6) we worked on advanced “stays”, complicated recalls, long-distance “go to your crate”, and had taken a distraction-filled walk. Surely, I thought, this pup is ready to chill out in front of the camera. Not quite. To Casey, my camera was another potential toy. The strap looked suspiciously like a tug, and the lens (my million dollar baby), required up close and personal inspection. With a wet nose. I did manage to snag a few cute shots using my tried and true method: holding a treat right above the camera or to the left of the lens. It’s impossible to take a bad picture of a pup this cute, though.
