Thimble Thursday: The Agreement

Thimble and I have an agreement. She lets me use her as a model during my attempts to hone what little photography skills I have. She allows me to get all up in her face for closeups, and she's such a patient little lady, always granting me enough time and poses to really experiment with all of those lighting and other terrifying settings on the camera. In return, Thimble gets to share the resulting photos and thereby grace the world with her adorableness. You know, a little something like this:





What about all of our furry and human friends out there? Do you have photo shoot agreements with each other? And do any of have a favorite kind of photo or technique?

Here's hoping that everybuddy has a wonderful Thursday!

Our Tip of the Day:
I've previously offered at least a couple of tips on photographing those lovely furbabies of yours. I still constantly come across new tips on this topic, though, some of which I actually understand enough to employ. One tip I don't think I've ever mentioned on here, but which is indeed useful in some cases, is to mute your camera's shutter sound. Although for some furbabies the mere sight of the camera is all it takes, there are some kitties and pups who will run to, run from, or in some way react to the sound of the camera, which can perhaps be alleviated by muting the camera's sound. Of course, though, I'll also use this time to reiterate a tip I gave just a couple of days ago. And that tip is to make sure that, above all else, you and your furbaby enjoy themselves and have fun during photo shoots. Any time spent with your furry ones should be made to be happy and fun, and that includes photo shoots! Although getting those favorite, clear, beautiful shots of your furbaby is wonderful and allows for a treasury of lovely memories, it is also important that you not let yourself get bogged down by the camera and its settings so much that you fail to have fun or fail to address your furbaby and his or her needs. Fun is key!

  1. Great pictures Thimble, your Mom did such a good job. Our Mom just tries to get pictures of us having a good time. Good idea about muting the shutter to keep the cats from know what is going on. It just takes a lot of patience to get good pictures. You all have a great day.

  2. Thimble is very patient. We not so agreeing anymore when it comes to photo shoots. We will look away just as the mom is getting ready to snap the picture, much to her dismay, even though she has tried to use the flashy thing less and less.

  3. Thimble is a beautiful model, great shots. She needs to give Eddy some lessons on sitting still :) Nice tip, I didn't know you could mute the shutter, I must try that.

  4. Great pictures! No agreements here. They just have to be in the right mood. But natural lighting is a must!

  5. Those are wonderful close-up shots of Thimble! Our mom has muted our camera's shutter sound, not for us, but for her own sake!

  7. Those are lovely photos of Thimble. My mum says I used to be a proper poser, but lately I am not so keen on having my photo taken.

  13. Mom gave out a big "ahh" when she got to photo #3. She did not know you could mute the sound of the shutter. She usually just uses her phone, so she will pass that muting tip on to our camera guy, Dad. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo
