Photography Assignment

The Plan

It was blazing hot today, so I decided a Frosty Paws cup met both the challenges and the situation.

The Problems

The shoot itself posed no problems, and when I was done I turned the boys loose with the cups still in front of the camera. This was the first time I just left the cups unattended on the floor for them (usually someone holds each cup, to prevent cup-lifting) so I was quite curious how things would turn out.

I was kinda hoping to get some good tongue shots.

Not happening.

While there was certainly plenty of tongue, the camera failed to capture it as the boys chased their little cups all around the floor.

The Solution

In the end, I gave up trying, retreating to the sofa with a cup in each hand and a dog attached to each cup.

It was just too hot to pursue it any further!

What's My Line?

Editor's Note: I had the pleasure of being interviewed over at Alfie's Blog.

It was interesting to see the questions someone else had for me, and going through those questions and thinking about the answers made me realize how much the boys and I have learned and grown over the past couple years.

Whoa!! As a huge fan of your photography, that interview was like delving into the candy jar! Too many of my photo sessions wind up stressful and just never thought about using a clicker for this! You have given me a lot to think about!
