When my mancat Evan was younger, when he still acted a little like the semi-feral little kitten that he started out as, he would go just a tad bit berserk when his picture was taken. What I'm saying is, sometimes even at the mere sight of a camera, Evan would flash his claws and teeth, and he would use them. Needless to say, I don't have all that many pictures of my boy from his younger days.
Over time, though, my momma's boy has vastly mellowed out and matured. He no longer shows any disdain for the camera. Not even when it's in his face, up close and personal.
So what about our furiends our there? Do you like the flashy box? Do you model for it? Or do you loathe it? Or, have any of you had a change of heart like Evan?
We hope everybuddy has a wonderful Monday to start their week!
Our Tip of the Day:
A while back I gave a series of tips about photographing your furbabies. One of the most important ones, both for you and your furbaby's sake, is to get on their level. This helps you to be more prepared for catching a shot of them, in their element, right at the perfect moment. But even more so, especially in the case of a furbaby not yet accustomed to the camera, getting on their level also allows that flashy box to appear less threatening. So, when ambushing your furbaby with that flashy box, try doing so on their level, which can allow for great shots, but also may help models-in-training to get used to that flashy box.
