I had grand plans for this weeks theme, framed. It was Tank's birthday week, he turned three. It would be fun to do a photoshoot with the empty clearanced frame I bought specifically for portraits years ago. Before I discovered I didn't want to be a portrait photographer.
My plans went to hell in a hand basket when I couldn't get my remote trigger app on my phone to connect to my camera. It worked last time I took a photo with myself and the dogs. Without a remote or a second helper, the action photoshoot I planned was a bust. Plan B went like this:
Lie down. STAY. run run run. I think I am back far enough? Turn around to shoot, Tank pops up to a sit annnd Remi had turned around.
Sit. STAY. I mean STAY! run run run, further. Turn around to shoot, both Labs come running.
The Diva is framed.
Ugh! STAY. I MEAN STAY (hand cue hand cue)!! run run run. Turn around to shoot, both Labs come running.
You are ALL suppose to be BEHIND the frame!
STAY. I REALLY MEAN STAY (hand cue hand cue, and hand cue)!! STAY. run run run. Turn around to shoot. I've lost the young ones attention. All dogs come running.
Remi is still framed.
ONE more time...STAY! run run run. Turn around to shoot, annnd give up.
Dogs enjoy treats for their efforts.
