These are stud Chihuahuas. My brief was to create some photos which showed off their characters, to use on their site - using bubbles and feathers. My partner remembered seeing a photo where the dog was looking through a bubble.
So I set out to re-create what he had seen. It was a lot of hard work. Challenge 1: get a bubble to stay intact long enough to photograph it!
Challenge 2: Stud dogs don't understand the word 'Sit' or 'Stay', nor do they really respond to silly squeaky noises and they are obsessed with marking everything!
Challenge 3: lock focus on the eyes, through the bubble.
Challenge 4: Do the above all at the same time.
Solution: Pastrami! - and a lot of patience!
