I staged an impromptu photo session today to try to get a new promo picture for the blog. I discovered it's not an easy trick when you don't have any help.
I decided to try to limit their mobility by putting Jillie and Eddie on the teeter in the yard and having Lucy sit between them. I set the camera on a tripod and the 8-second timer setting and ran around to pose with them.
It was then I discovered I had no way to encourage them to look at the camera. I tried holding treats out over the teeter toward the camera, but that was a miserable failure. All they did was look at my hands, and I looked silly in the picture holding my hands up.
I then tried sitting on the camera side of the teeter so the dogs would at least look at me. I had slightly better luck there. At least all our faces were visible, but still no way to get them to look at the camera.
Next time, I think I'll get an assistant to take the picture!
For laughs sake, here are a few of the outtakes and the winning pic.
