"Did you just get done feeding him to get those open-mouth shots?"
Actually, no. My friend and I had just finished letting him get comfortable on his make-shift set when he started stretching. Neither of us were ready to shoot but each of us got off a few shots.
"Also, are you using a new digital to get those close-up shots?"
Yeah, I got a new Sony at the end of August. I'm still getting use to its tendencies but I'm having fun doing so. I should have made the investment a while back, but since I didn't, I now have another reason to look forward to next season.
