We are working on designing a new header, so I decided to try and get some shots of the dogs. I started with Zappa and Fiona, because my chances of getting all four Back Dogs in a shot are about as good as winning the lottery. So I figure I will start with the pairs.
These turned out pretty good, except I couldn't get either to look at the camera at the same time. Then I had it. The perfect shot. Zappa was sitting down and Fiona was lying in front of him...I had it except my perfectionism played tricks with me as I fussed around trying to center the picture around a bucket on the ground that could have been cropped out when Zappa move and the moment was over. I'm still kicking myself for that one.
So then I took a wild gamble and tried for all four Back Dogs together. I couldn't believe it, they were all together in one spot. Nobody was moving, Brut didn't know if I had treats or not, I had their attention except for Fiona. Just keep shooting, she'll turn around. Moments like this don't come along every day....INTERNAL MEMORY FULL! WHAT?? You've got to be kidding me!! I didn't have my SD card and I couldn't move to go get it. ...NOOOOOOOOO!! I couldn't believe it. It was the best shot I've ever seen of the four of them together and I only got two shots. All I could do was give them their treats and watch as everyone scattered. The moment was blown and there was no going back. I tried a few more times to get everyone together, but it just wasn't going to happen. :( Maybe tomorrow?
One last chance for a good shot with my trusty Front Dogs, Blaze and Chance. I think this photo says it all of how my photo shoot went:
Did you say play dead??
