Project 52 is back this week with a fun challenge! And by that, I mean a challenge. We were to produce an image that would showcase more than one animal. As you can imagine, this can be a little daunting – trying to get multiple pets within one frame, all looking cute, takes time and imagination and sometimes, a little bit of serendipity. Well, just to make things a little more challenging, I decided to photograph 3 dogs that were currently awaiting forever homes at Toronto Animal Services. Imagine…three dogs, running free within in a shelter environment, with absolutely no one to assist me. Was that crazy? Probably, yes. But, I think you will agree that the final Posh Pets image is a keeper!
I would like to take a moment to tell you a a little more about this cute boy trio. Toby, on the left, has a wee bit of an issue – his tongue is always hanging out like that due to the fact that he has no teeth on that side and a probable neurological issue. It gives him a perpetual goofy expression. Maxie, the Shih Tzu in the middle, was surrendered by his previous owner with a badly ulcerated eye that, unfortunately, needed to be removed. He is doing remarkably well adjusting to having just one eye. Hubert, the cutie on the right, is a lovely boy, but will need a bit of a strong lead to have him trained properly. However, they all got along with each other famously. Which just goes to show…if you look past the imperfections, you can find friends anywhere!
Now, adoption photos tend to be one animal per image so that prospective human parents can see who they are asking about. So, here are their final images. Enjoy!
Next in the blog circle is Boston Dog Photographer, Kaylee Greer. Please see what groups of animals she and the rest of the Beautiful Beasties gang photographed this week! And don’t forget to have a nice, long weekend (if you live in Canada)!
