Your Food Lady has been a busy girl! She’s working on all kinds of things these days, including a special thank you to the lovely folks who donated to keep me (and by extension, Wootube) up and running. Watch your mailboxes!!
SAINTS photo shoot number 2 took place this week, and I think it gave me carpal tunnel syndrome. That’sa lotta dogsa! There’s a sneak preview for you here later in this episode ;-)
So today was the first day I’ve had some free time, and I took advantage of it to spirit some very pouty dogs off to the beach for a couple of hours. They said after a week of being largely ignored, it was a nice gesture, but not good enough.
But the allure of the ocean jollied them out of their pissy moods.
And there was rejoicing.
And then I had to stop with the photos, because my wrist was swearing at me. Now there are dog-shaped piles of sand making the floor look arty, and 4 soggy and tired dogs heaped around under furniture.
This leaves me some time to edit more SAINTS photos.
This time around we tried to simulate a studio effect. For Every. Single. Dog. It took a long time.
I say simulate because, of course, we have no studio. All we had were some white sheets, a reflector and many packages of tempting Snausages.
But I think the results were quite good, all things considered.
All in all, I think they turned out quite well! At least for most of the dogs. A few were not so cooperative, and in a couple of other cases, I just failed to get a really nice shot.
Carol told me this evening that Rose passed away this afternoon. I am now sad that I didn’t get a really love photo of her during the session – a hard lesson to learn when photographing SAINTS dogs … you may not get a second chance.
I *definitely* got the weird puppy.
