Once I get this finished, I will probably publish it as an ebook and then donate a portion of the proceeds to my local SPCA. (And that's another way to help your local animal shelter.)
But seriously--if I can do this, anyone can do this. Best of all, I have a good supply of not-so-good pictures through which I can illustrate my don't-do-this lessons! :-)
Example: Don't crop your photos so it looks like you're featuring a two-legged dog.
Don't hang a backdrop and not see the sun shining through it.
Don't let the dog get so hot that all you notice is his VERY long tongue.
And don't use a photo in which the animal looks like it would eat a prospective family's children. :-) (This was actually just a yawn--she was a very sweet dog.)
DO portray the animal as a pet that would be perfectly at home with anyone who has the time and love to give. :-)
What do you think? Would a little book like this inspire you or someone you know to pick up a camera?
