Lately I've needed to pose for various photographs for a few projects I'm involved in. Sometimes it's as easy as picking out my outfit, finding a spot with a great background and good lighting, and things go as planned. A few shots and we've got one I can use. Other times....well, see for yourself!
Even Linus wouldn't cooperate! Don't worry though, no animals (or humans) were harmed in this photo shoot!
Ducks always go stiff when you pick them up and point a camera at them. I kept telling Sasha here to just 'act natural'....no good.
One of my early solo attempts before I realized the background was just as important as the subject of the photograph!
Things always seem to go better when there's not a chicken (or a duck or a cat!) involved.
Switching to inanimate objects worked a whole lot better!
Eggs are just SO well-behaved always.
Finally one of the ducks cooperated !
And finally we're done and just 'hanging out'.
