If someone asked me what was the most difficult part of blogging, I would shout out – pets and photography!
I am NOT a pet photographer. That’s the truth – the whole truth – nothing but the Doodle truth #sohelpmeGod…
I’m just someone trying her #doodledarnest to capture something worthy of sharing.
For every decent photo I procure, dozens of the exact same shot have been tossed in the trash…
I think pets and photography have got to be the hardest in all the land. Paws up high to all those who’ve mastered this difficult art 🐾
I’m not talking about lighting, exposure or background. I’m referring to my subjects….
Harley is the closest thing to a novice pet photographers dream #thatwouldbeme…
Generally if I ask him to do something he obliges me.
But there’s a #demondoodle side that has a tendency to show up without warning.
Take this photo – he stayed in position while we waited for the people to walk by. He allowed me to back up, adjust my lens and this is what I captured…
Not quite what I was aiming for #punintended
When he’s “on” he’s “spot-on” …
But he’s also a pouter! Jaxson will shut down on you faster than the cable company if you forget to pay your bill.
Take this photo – he wanted to go outside. We’d been out there all morning. I wanted to take some photos of him playing with an interactive toy. #Divodoodle refused to even look at me…
I’d like to invest in another camera this summer. I want one with faster shutter speed. Pawhaps that way I can catch the shots I want BEFORE my subjects change their minds. #doodlemomsdream
