So I have been getting questions about Abner’s modeling skills. The big one being: how do I get him to sit still?
Before I just got really lucky. I would literally sit there and say Abner’s name over and over again until he looked at me. It worked ok, but obviously Abner didn’t care about what I was doing.
But then I learned the trick:
Abner. Loves. Food. I mean, of course he does – he’s a pug. But I decided to use his gluttony to my advantage. Now on my trips, I take a little bag of treats and hold one above the camera to get his attention.
Sometimes he looks straight at the camera:
Other times, he looks straight up:
Either way, he sits still long enough for me to get my closeups. It takes a lot of patience to take photos of animals (or children) but the results are so much fun!
The next time you are out with your four-legged buddy, take a bag of treats and see what comes of it.
Tune in Wednesday where T and I will be in Vegas!!!!
