So naturally, I take a lot of pictures of him. Hey, it's not like I have small children hanging around anymore to photograph! I work with what I have. And what I have is a fun dog who knows the sound of the camera being turned on, and likes to jam his body into as many shots as he can. You normally see the good pictures on this blog. But for every good shot, there's at least 10 bad shots. Today? I'm giving you a behind-the-scenes look at Photography With Paco...the Outtakes™.
Remember my Fashion Friday with Janell's cowl? Paco LOVED that cowl. So I indulged him by kneeling down to let him sniff it. While this shot was OK:
Please note my lips sealed shut as Paco attempts to get up close and (too) personal!
The next series? He kept jumping up (and not facing the camera, darn him!):
He really, really liked the cowl. Have I mentioned that? ;)
OK, cowl removed (I was getting hot) - maybe now he'll focus?
Still smellz like Bella...
But finally, I got a cute picture - of course, he surprised me when he jumped onto my lap, but cracked me up when he turned as the camera did the last three quick beeps before the shutter snapped:
This is a more normal shot:
Camera! Camera!! Camera!!!
I swear, one second before this, he was calmly posing next to my face...then, he HAD to lick me - this is my avoidance pose:
Me and Paco - he's a nut, but he's MY nut.
