Photo Friday ~ The Right Shot

It’s not so easy getting “the right shot” when taking pictures of dogs, especially puppies. They tend to get excited over the fact that you have treats and want to move around and do what they can to please you. I think on Wednesday, I took over 20+ photo’s to get this great side-by-side shot of my two current fosters Gypsy and Bandit.

Final Product! Gypsy & Bandit.

Just for the fun of it, I thought I would share with you some of the outtakes that were still good but not GREAT!


Brewer snuck into the background and the light source was blocked.


Still cute, but I wanted to get a shot where you could see the size differences in the pups.


Both dogs not paying attention t me at all!


Another great contender for “the right shot” but with Bandit slightly in front of Gypsy you couldn’t really compare the size all that well.

Like I said there, were TONS of other shots with the dogs in motion and blurry, or with my other two dogs being nosy and sneaking into the picture without me noticing. Taking tons of pictures and having a little patience goes a long way though. Sometimes you end of with an unplanned gem like the one below with my two boys (Brewer and Bailey) and my foster girl Gypsy.


**Disclaimer: I don’t claim to be a photographer by any means, I just try my best to get good pictures for the sake of this blog :)**

Gypsy and Bandit are available for adoption through Mutts Matter Rescue.  If you are interested in adopting one (or both) of these cuties please visit the Mutts Matter Rescue page and fill out an adoption application.
