Hi Alison:
That's probably the thing I like most about digital cameras -- the ability to see a shot on a camera's preview screen and delete it as soon as I realize it's no good. Before digital cameras, I spent soooo much money on film and film developing...often to find out that maybe only 1/4 to 1/3 turned out to be as good as I'd hoped they'd be.

The pros always make it look easy and they all say it's only because there's hours and hours of practice preceding their best work!


Hi Kate:
I can't say I blame our critters for not liking the camera flash -- it's sometimes quite bright for my eyes, so I can only imagine how it feels to them!

Wish I'd read that before writing my blog about my first time fostering a guinea pig. I spent ages (106 photos) trying to get the 4 shots I put in the blog of which I really think only two are good. My blog post (brain4rent) is linked below. http://brain4rent.wordpress.com/2011/02/25/fostering-good-relations/

FYI I found your post on flooding on the House Rabbit Network and followed through to photography. I am a huge fan of both animals.


I don't have guinea pigs but your suggestions works on my rabbit who has camera shy and prefer to nap in their rabbit hutch just to escape from the flash.
