My sister's dog is a constant source of entertainment at these retreats. He likes to be in the thick of things. He loves playing fetch and paper. That is where the trouble lies. Any scrap or picture that may accidentally fall into his territory is, well, in his domain and no longer yours.
My sister took this picture of Jedi Dog helping me, giving his opinion, using his paw to move paper or photo to a location he felt would be better than the way I had it.
Get out from behind your camera and document yourself. Embrace your camera.
