Before Noticing The Camera


Steff is an old dog, she’s almost 14 years old. She’s a very nice and pleasant dog, but that’s only if there is no camera.

All of her life, Steff has been terrified of cameras. As soon as she notices a camera, she starts shaking and tries to hide under something or behind somebody. Her owner had tried to take some photos with either her point and shoot camera or her iPhone, but to no avail…

Steff is so terrified of cameras, that the cameras don’t have to be pointed at her and already she starts shaking. She can identify and recognize cameras at a distance.

I was only able to make 4 or 5 photos on high speed, aka a ½ second, then she started shaking, turned around and went to hide under one of the tables.

This is Steff’s very first good photo…

Normally, I spend time with the dog, for them to get used to the camera, to get used to me and then we usually go and do things. This time was different, how quick can I take good photos? With Steff, there is no second chance.
