I have two cats and one dog. I love to take photos of them and they’re usually available for a photo session. My dog doesn’t like to look at the camera because she isn’t fond of the camera flash. What she doesn’t realize is that the camera doesn’t always flash. But try explaining that to a dog! The cats, on the other hand, don’t really care if I take their photo.
My cats aren’t nearly as interesting to photograph as my dog. The cats don’t do too much and their facial expressions don’t really change. But my dog is a great model. She’s a happy, carefree dog that loves people, is great with kids and is gentle as a lamb. Even the neighborhood cats know how nice she is and they aren’t afraid of her.
My dog is a boxer and she has a very pronounced underbite. To top it off, her tongue is too big for her mouth and usually part of it will be sticking out of her mouth. It makes for some amusing photos.
I also have tropical fish, but they’re not very interesting to photograph. And they move too quickly, so all the photos turn out blurry.
