Behold the power of Super Glue!!
Some of you have been wondering how my hamsters can sit/lay still on my hand for quite a while like this. Wanna know the secret...??
... it's really the Super GLUE!!!
Lol, nah... the secrets are none other than 3T: Trust, Trick & Time. Let me elaborate some more for you: Trust:
If the animals are afraid of you, they won't feel comfortable being near you. Even if you menage to hold your pets, the first thought in their mind is to run away from you. If you insist, they bite. Animals are simple. They don't have poker face. ^^Trick:
Animals, just like human is a creature of habit. Knowing their habits, creating some positive habits and finally use their habits to direct them into a pose or a scene that you like to take a picture of. The key to use this habit to your advantage is Respect. If you can't make your dog listen to your "SIT" command, you know that your rank is actually below him/her. Be the alpha dog in your home & your dog won't chew your hamster when you tell him/her not to.Time:
Okie, so you could put your hammie on your dog head and they stared at you thinking how nuts you were as an owner but you still missed that great shot with your camera?? You need to practice more pressing the button with the speed of light then. Seriously, since pets will listen to you only for a short amount of time, unless you train them like Police K9 dogs, they won't stay for long in one pose. They can't pause & let their mouth open when they yawn just to wait till you get your camera gets the right focus.... So, yeah, be buddy-buddy with your cam, know every button there, so that you can take the shot at the right time & the result won't be blurry. ^^
See? It's simple! No more secrets! Go take some photos of your pets now, upload them in your DA gallery & send me the best ones for my regular pet feature news here: [link]
