Today I bring you a fun photo session I did while babysitting a friend’s dog. It’s pretty silly, but maybe showcases a different type of ‘pet-portrait’ you could try at home! Basically, hold your camera with one hand and have a bunch of kibble in the other. When your camera is focused and ready to go, gently toss a kibble towards your furry companion and try to catch them mid chomp! I recommend NOT using rapid fire, but working on your single shot timing instead (think James Bond rather than the villain). And given that the dogs had to catch the kibble, it’s kind of like a sporting event-so totally Olympic related? Let’s first get a look at the competitors for the first every Kibble-ympics:Maple is an 8 year old Golden Doodle. Favourite activity is playing fetch. Alias: Beautiful Angel GirlJuniper is a 2 year old Golden Doodle. Favourite activity is swimming and chasing birds and bunnies. Alias: GremlinJuno is a 4 (ish?) year old Weimaraner. Favourite activity is going for walks. Alias: “what type of dog is that?”
Ok, now I’ll let y’all decide who you think had the most style and ability to catch the kibbles. I recommend using the old school 6 point figure skating scoring method.
First up: Juno
Look at that focus! She’s not going to let any kibble get away!Such technique, making sure to get the kibble that was tossed a little too highGreat form Juno, your mouth is perfectly shaped for that kibble
And finally, we have JuniperOff to a good start, definitely going to catch that kibbleNot sure if this one rebounded off her mouth, but it was pretty close!A clear shot, straight to the tummy!Juniper, it helps to keep your eyes open if you want to catch it!
And there you have it ladies and gents, the first ever Kibble-ympics! The IOC should definitely consider making this an official sport within the Olympics. I hope everyone enjoys watching the real Olympics in Rio as much as I will!
