September 22: What Was That???!?
September 22, 2005 Lisa Carmichael

September 22: What Was That???!?

Studio City, CA

For my PaD today I decided to try to get a portrait-type picture of our younger Jack Russell, Busby. The challenge is trying to get him to sit still. His instincts are so strong that even the slightest rustling of leaves or noise in a neighbor's yard sends him racing off to investigate, and, if he has his way, conquer the intruder. We struck a compromise for this picture - I held his favorite toy captive and he paid attention to me...sort of!

Canon EOS 350D ,Canon EF-S 17-85mm f/4-5.6 IS
1/125s f/8.0 at 72.0mm iso400 full exif

other sizes: small medium large original

Great story on how to hold this pups attention. Great portrait of your pup.

Well done! Focus is right on, and he has a grin (sort of!).......but I really love his eyes - he is focused and ready.

That pointy pose of his nose, the open mouth and focused eyes are telling me he was ready to grab his favorite toy. Good shot. I wish I could do the same to people to pay attention, LOL.

Great shot Lisa! I can almost feel the bite! :-o Clever tactic by the way. Me I get this look when you hold my steak hostage. :-o

Gayle said it. Also you did an excellent job of focus on the nose and one eye. It came out very well. Good show Lisa.

The picture almost vibrates. He is so alert!
