13th December 2015   - Walkies or Treat? by pamknowler

13th December 2015 - Walkies or Treat?

Getting Finlay to pose for this shot with the bokeh hearts was not easy!! 20 treats later and calling "walkies" finally got him up on the stool so the lights were behind him. He just thought we were mad!! What do thay say about working with animals and children? Well it's certainly right about dogs!! LOL!!

For my mentoring group - theme - bokeh. We all had the idea of doing heart shaped bokeh and of course I had to use Finlay for this shot - well he has got my heart!!

Sorry I am behind - again!! Been busy trying to get to grips with the new Macbook Pro. Pulling my hair out now - I need someone to take me through it!! I was ok with LR and PS on my PC but with the Creative Cloud I seem to be brain dead!! I may have to leave it until after Christmas now to get some lessons.

How lovely to see Finlay on the PP this morning! So pleased you liked it!

Well here is my version of bokeh hearts. You probably guessed I would use Finlay for this shot. It was not easy trying to get him in position with the right distance between him and the lights!! He could not understand what we wanted - poor boy!! LOL!!

He looks confused LOL!!! Fantastic shot of his little face, I can almost feel that fur the detail is so superb :)
December 13th, 2015  
Wonderful!
December 13th, 2015  
@pixiemac He was confused!! LOL!! Mind you he managed to get all the treats so he was very happy by the end!!

I tried the same thing with our dog, but she would have none of it. :) Cute shot.
December 13th, 2015  
Great portrait shot of your cute dog, neat dof
December 13th, 2015  
He is gorgeous, such a lovely expression.
December 13th, 2015  
A great shot of Finley -- and very clever of you to get him where you wanted him -- we know terriers have a mind of their own !!
December 13th, 2015  
Lovely capture FAV!
December 13th, 2015  
@beryl Not easy Beryl!!

Aww, this is darling.
December 13th, 2015  
He does look a bit confused
December 13th, 2015  
gorgeous focus on his handsome face :)
December 13th, 2015  
I am not a big pet photo fan but this goes beyond the typical pet snapshot with the lighting and heart shaped bokeh! FAV!
December 13th, 2015  
a lovely shot of Finlay - Fav
December 13th, 2015  
Great composition and shot, well done for persevering and getting this lovely image
December 13th, 2015  
Finlay did a good job! Love the bokeh!
December 13th, 2015  
Great capture of Finlay
December 13th, 2015  
Adorable! I think worth the trouble!
December 13th, 2015  
Finlay does look very serious here, as if he is concerned about your apparent madness. I love all pictures of Finlay whatever his expression, fav for him and for the heart-shaped bokeh too.
December 13th, 2015  
HAHAH Finlay has done a good job!
December 13th, 2015  
Cute pic, nicely done!
December 13th, 2015  
Wonderful capture, I think Finlay should appear on your Christmas cards!
December 13th, 2015  
Lovely shot, worth the 20 treats I'm sure.
December 14th, 2015  
Superb bokeh
December 14th, 2015  
Sweet capture and I love the heart bokeh.
December 14th, 2015  
Wonderful capture!
December 14th, 2015  
LOL! Finlay is smart :) 20 treats ~ He's so handsome and the beautiful bokeh hearts... awesome.
December 14th, 2015  
What can I possibly say except instant fave. Just gorgeous, as usual.
December 14th, 2015  
Fabulous!
December 14th, 2015  
Very dear, Pam!
December 14th, 2015  
Oh, so sweet. Great heart-shaped bokeh and a handsome Finlay to accompany it!
December 14th, 2015  
Yes! Good work, excellent pay off!
December 14th, 2015  
ROFL
December 14th, 2015  
Fantastic :)
December 14th, 2015  
@joansmor it's no good I have to ask what does ROFL mean? I just can't work out what it stands for! Sorry if it's a silly question!
December 14th, 2015  
Rolling On Floor Laughing. And I am again. To me a stronger laugh than LOL.
December 14th, 2015  
Both please! Lovely shot
December 14th, 2015  
Finley is a doll! And I love the way you have "decorated" your tree. Thank you for visiting my page!
December 14th, 2015  
@joansmor Oh i am useless at these - I should have asked my sister's grandchildren as they are always coming up with words I don't understand!! I will remember ROFL now!!
December 14th, 2015  
Beautiful.
December 14th, 2015  
Great shot of Finlay.....he certainly has your heart! FAV!
I think taking small steps with Mac and putting off the serious learning till after the holidays makes perfect sense! Don't stress yourself out any more than you have to! Remember, 12 days till Christmas! ;-)))
December 14th, 2015  
Lovely shot!
December 15th, 2015  
Aw, this is such a lovely shot Pam. Big fav.
