There’s an old saying in the movie-biz which dictates you should never work with children or animals since they’re unreliable and can’t take instructions well. I’ve had a black lab living with me whenever her owners went travelling and I recently had her staying with me again. I decided to try and capture some photos. Turns out that she’s really great at sitting in one spot, provided you tell her to sit. However she was terrible at remaining motionless or sitting in the assigned spot. I did get some half-decent photos but I guess that animals and kids are still among the more difficult subjects to work with, whether you’re in motion or still photography.
