Unless you have been living under a rock for the last 3 weeks (or this is the first time visiting us, in which case, thanks for stopping by, and be sure to leave us a note), our Mom has been taking a pet photography class, and pretty much all her photos of us have been directed at fulfilling her homework assignments. Which has been fine and dandy when she was doing natural light photos, and natural light with 'modifiers' (flashes and reflectors and other shiny things) photos. But this week was 'Studio Photography'. Which means that Mom has a zillion photos of us in the studio, and about 3 photos of us playing tennis ball. However, in spite of the abundance of studio photos, don't worry; we got plenty of tennis ball action. We also got plenty of liver treats, as studio photos = liver treats!
|This was one of Mom's homework submissions. Needless to say, we got a lot of liver treats for this. |
|Yep, more liver treats were involved.|
|I'm a patient girl, but make sure those liver treats are in plain view!|
|Abby was getting ready to move forward and snatch the liver treats if they weren't forthcoming.|
|Dark and mysterious.|
|Not at all dark and mysterious!|
|Liver treats? Right?|
|Maybe liver treats will fall from heaven.|
|Are there liver treats over there?!?|
All of this modeling is hard work, and there were times when some of us needed a break.
|Woe is me. I am too tired to move. You must administer liver treats immediately.|
But like I said before, it wasn't all work and no play. We got in plenty of tennis ball action this week.
This is the last week of Mom's photography class (after which, I guess, she is told to either take up knitting or put out her shingle and start charging money for her expertise, patience and liver treats), and this week's assignment is 'anything goes' so I think we'll have a variety of photos for next week!
Have a great week!

BTW, Mom knows (or thinks she knows) why blogger does weird things with the colors on some of our photos, but she says the amount of time and effort it would take to fix them all is more than she is willing to do.... Needless to say, you can pretty much tell which photos Mom put the extra time into tweaking the colors for the internet and which ones she just did basic edits and posted.
