I have taken a bunch of great portrait-style shots of the dogs in the past (mostly by accident) so I figured this would be easy: put the camera in portrait mode and take pictures of the dogs. Step one was easy. Step two-not so much. I had just given Charlie a new ball so they were wound up. I did find that I was able to use the ball to attract their attention where I wanted it, but was not fast enough to snap the shot I was going for. No wonder pet photographers charge so much!
Here is a picture of Sammy. Hard to believe my baby boy will be 8 next week!
