Everybody loves taking pictures. I, for one, love documenting every family occasion imaginable (birthdays, anniversaries, graduation, Christmas, New Year, Valentine). But also ‘non occasions’ like a simple shot of my kids playing in the rain, our dog Maxine trying to jump through one of the windows, or my husband tinkering with his motorcycle.
For me, there is always a reason to take pictures. In this day and age of digital technology , when albums of photos can be seen on a Facebook page, i still want to do it old school. I love taking pictures and have them developed or printed. I love seeing the result of my masterpiece, feeling the still warm copies, smelling the ink. I love making scrapbooks of family snapshots. For me its a tangible reminder of the good times we had, a look back memory lane.
Animals are excellent subjects for photo ops – the other are babies. There is something so spontaneous and alive when we have animal subjects. They always have something surprising to offer. There is always a little extra coming form them – a look, a pout, a hint of a smile, their paws in the air, or just a random pose that we find amusing to catch on film. One such animal is the dog. They seem to have that uncanny ability to project without much cajoling. They appear effortless and seamless and ‘professional’ in photos.
In this commercial ad there were interviews from dog owners. They talk about their dogs and how they love them. They gush about the characters and qualities of their dogs. They show pictures of their dogs. For them they are family. What these owners didn’t expect was that the tables will soon be turned and they are in for a big surprise!.
In the studio the owners were made to pose for a picture. As they make their way to finalize their poses out came their beloved pet. But it did not come to them as expected but rather it went up a staircase designed for them. On top of the staircase was a big red button with a camera beside it. And it proceeded to press the red button. It turned out that at every press of the button it takes a picture. At first there was a questioning look from the owners. But when the flash came one after the other, they realize that their pet is taking pictures of them!
The wide grins, sparkling eyes, glowing cheeks these are all just happiness radiating from within. Their pets are taking pictures of them and they could never be happier or more pleased! This is one snapshot they will talk about for generations – how one dog made a lasting imprint of a memory.
