    DefaultHow to Photograph Your New Puppy (old chestnut)

    Sparemom's post about taking a picture of her pup's new collar--

    She tried to get a close up, but, I'm not interested in being still.
    --reminded me of this "how-to" article. Apologies if you've seen it a million times before.

    Wish I would have read this before hand, then I wouldn't have been so agitated that I didn't get the" perfect" picture! Here I was thinking it could be possible!!!
