Lately, I’ve taken a lot of pet photos with our digital camera. In fact, I have a folder on my hard disk called "Dog Faces." In it, I have stored some serious close ups of canine snouts. Nostrils on parade.
The thing that’s challenging about taking pictures of pets with a digital camera is that there’s a delay. So you click the button thinking you are taking one photo, but by the time the camera gets around to processing the actual image, your pet has moved on. Cami, our willful white dog is a hound of many faces, so she can go through two or three facial expressions by the time the camera is done. Looking at the viewfinder for the final image is always sort of a surprise.
Last week, I made an effort to photograph Cami wearing a festive bow for the holidays. I got lots of pictures of the top of her head, her back, and her rear end. ("Cami come back here!")
I also got a hilarious photo of her yawning. It may not make a great holiday card, but it’s a classic Cami face, so naturally, I think it’s adorable 😉
