The most amazing thing about having friends is it’s never about how long you may have know them but it’s that wonderful aspect of what they bring into your life. Their personality makes your world a little brighter. Their conversation and intellect makes you challenge yourself more, makes you desire to learn more, and certainly makes you want to experience things in life as much as possible. I rarely turn down any invitation to do anything because I believe an invitation can lead to a new future, a new person that may change things, or a new experience that may change you. The best thing about meeting new friends for me is that they always bring a new energy to my soul and they make me not only a better person but they make me try harder to be a better person. Here’s to great friends and great parties in Stevensville, Montana.

Tips On Animal Photography

IMG_8515Do you have a pet that is scared of the camera? So, every time you point the camera at your pet they turn their head from fear almost like it’s the vacuum. Here’s what you do to train them that every time they see the camera they pose. My dog Daisy May has this technique of posing because she see’s the camera and immediately associates it with a treat.

How did I do this?

What you’re going to do is use the desensitizing training method. You can use this with any object or sound that the animal is afraid of. So, every time you bring out the camera have a bag of treats. Every time the dog comes near the camera treat them. They will quickly associate this object, the camera, with a treat. If you have a dog ask him or her to sit when the camera is out and treat them with the camera pointed at them. This quickly gets you dog to feel more comfortable and they will recognize this photo shooting event as a positive experience and I can guarantee better photographs of your furry friend.
