My Dog; My Model
My dog Jazzy is a funny critter. She has learned that a camera in my hand means a treat. I was setting up the photo for my diamond shape and she knew what she was supposed to do.
The hard part now is getting her to show some expressions. Most times now, all I get is the "Okay, I'm sitting here waiting patiently, now where is the treat?" look.
To get her to seem more interested, I have been using sounds from the internet. A screechy voice, a bell, (but not a door bell because that will send her barking to the front door), a bird screaming, or another dog barking. But sometimes, like today, all I have to do is ask her if she wants to go for a walk and her expression changes from intense waiting to "Oh boy, a walk, yippee!"
Here are a few shots from the diamond session. To see the one I'm chose for the book you will have to get a book.
