How to Photograph a Puppy

naughty-puppiesWell it’s spring, which means Puppies!! Seeing as how I’ve seen at least one puppy at almost every event, party and/or Barbeque I’ve been to lately, I thought I’d do some puppy research. Turns out, people who have puppies like to capture them on film. They grow up so fast you know, so I searched and searched and finally found the steps for taking a great puppy picture:

1. Remove film from box and load camera.
2. Remove film box from puppy’s mouth and throw in trash.
3. Remove puppy from trash and brush coffee grounds from muzzle.
4. Choose a suitable background for photo.
5. Mount camera on tripod and focus.

7. Place puppy in pre-focused spot and return to camera.
8. Forget about spot and crawl after puppy on knees.
9. Focus with one hand and fend off puppy with other hand.
10. Get tissue and clean nose print from lens.
11. Take flash cube from puppy’s mouth and throw in trash.
12. Put cat outside and put peroxide on the scratch on puppy’s nose.
13. Put magazines back on coffee table.

15. Replace your glasses and check camera for damage.
16. Jump up in time to grab puppy and say, “No, outside! No,outside!”
17. Call spouse to clean up mess.
18. Fix a drink.
19. Sit back in Lazy Boy with drink and resolve to teach puppy “sit/stand” and “stay” the first thing in the morning.
20. Consider buying “older, trained” rescue dog.

Have a great week!
