Hey there – it’s me – SYDNEY! MAC told me that this week for the 52 Project that I get to take my very own photo… a “selfie”! Since I have very long poodle legs, I can hold the camera out really far. Which helps, ’cause I have this REALLY long poodle nose along with my entire gorgeous, heart-breakingly beautiful dog face. I know, I am a bit on the modest side… I’m working on it, but it’s really hard when you’re a glamour girl – well, that’s what MAC and Tom’s neighbors call me when I’m out strutting my stuff on our daily walk around the ‘hood.
Anyhoo… back to the subject at hand.. ahem! MAC said I should use her “nifty 50” lens since her camera is so heavy and this is the lightest lens she has. And did I need to tell you that it’s WAY hot here in Virginia where I live? I made a deal that I would take my very own selfie if MAC agreed to throw sticks for me to chase first. Not my best look with my big ol’ poodle tongue hangin’ out, but hey – what’s a girl gonna do to cool off?
Here goes – my first selfie! I forgot that I had to LOOK at that big black gaping hole with my eyes OPEN. OH.. and hold it really STILL… OH… and don’t move! WOW – How does MAC get any decent shots when she has to photograph other furry creatures like me?
I finally got a little better at holding still and making sure I was looking at the big black hole thing.. so several attempts later…
Now..let’s go find out what Kelly’s furry ones did this week – that’s Kelly Baugh at Amyranth Pet Photography in San Francisco, California! Keep clickin’ away on the webring links until you get back here to ME!
Beautiful Beasties is a network with forums, blogs and chats for professional pet photographers, where we can get advice, share images and support each other. This post is part of the 52 Project Challenge. Each week, a new theme is chosen by a forum member – the requirement is that whatever we post must be shot that week – no fair using archived photos! It’s a great way to hone our photography skills and flex our creativity muscles. Our posts are linked together in a “web blog ring”. We use blog comments or the forum to leave feedback. Seeing what our fellow pet photographers have captured over the past week on Friday mornings is like a box of chocolates – you never know what you’re gonna get! (apologies to Forrest…)
