This year, we are joining a fun Pet Blogger Blooper Round-Up hosted by The Lazy Pit Bull to showcase some of our blooper photos that just didn't ever make the cut to the blog. Any kind of blogger is welcome to join, and we think this will be a lot of fun! This blog hop takes place on the 2nd Friday of every month.
Shiner refuses to sit or lay down when and where I want her to. And when we finally compromise, she refuses to look at the camera or will try to walk away right when I'm in position for the perfect shot. Also, she has lately been trying to steal some of the products I'm trying to photograph her with.
During our photo shoot for our Trusty Tails Treat Kitchen review, she stole this bag of dog treats from me and made a run for it. She stopped to try and open the bag herself, but I still needed to take pictures of it. I literally had to wrestle her for this bag of treats and was a little out of breath afterwards.

For Callie's blooper, she may look innocent posing with the pet camera but she was really angry. This photo shoot didn't last very long and I was as fast as possible. Her paw is extended and ready to strike at any moment!
|I will cut you, human!|
As for the rats, Jack and Gus, they aren't bad for photos. It's just that they are so small and don't hold still for very long. Photographing small pets requires quick thinking, good lighting, a decent camera, and patience. I just kind of let them run around where ever they want to and try to capture the best moments that I can.
One of the hardest parts about taking pictures of Jack and Gus is trying to capture them when they sleeping together all cute like. As soon as they realize I am there looking at them, they have to bum rush me as fast as possible and then the moment is over.

So yea... taking pictures of pets is not always easy. There can be a lot of work behind it, but the challenge is what makes it fun half the time!
