When props don't cooperate but the model does:
' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/75000-79999/75585/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1274753.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/75000-79999/75585/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1274753.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

When models tire of "the process":
' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/75000-79999/75585/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1274752.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/75000-79999/75585/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1274752.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

This is my pup Sawyer aka Soy Sauce (nicknamed by my two boys when they were younger) "Oh Soy Sauce" was the phrase of the day in our house for years. Anyway, he is a phenomenal model, for the most part, as long as treats are involved. Like ' . substr('https://www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', strrpos('https://www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_F.gif', '/') + 1) . ' kasaba mentioned in her comments on the image, my dog also lives to go in to 'the studio' (a room in our house). When the door is opened he goes in, finds his spot and is hard pressed to leave without having his photo taken and a treat given. The cat, Scooter, likes to wander in and taunt him when he is 'working' so I have to close the door and he waits not so patiently on the other side to have it opened because he is the king of the house and doesn't appreciate closed doors.

This particular session was rife with issues. I was crawling around on the ground trying to scurry back to take the photo before his head piece fell and put my knee down on the edge of the platform I have in there for stability on top of the carpet. It hurt SO bad, that was the end of shooting that day, so there was no perfecting the shot. When will I learn not to wait until the last minute? To be fair, I was waiting to have him groomed and then that got bumped. :-(

OUCH - that sounds sore :-(.

Have you got a "fur throw" and matching backdrop in different colours? That looks so nice!

And yes, the cat also wants to model in my house. She is actually quite good at it when I give her a chance :-)

OUCH - that sounds sore :-(. Definitely ended the session, I thought for sure it was tweaked bad by the crunchy sound it made. But all good now.

Have you got a "fur throw" and matching backdrop in different colours? That looks so nice! I do for the littles that I used to photograph, pre Covid. I havenít had any since the world reopened. I have been focusing on high school seniors. But I sure miss them!

And yes, the cat also wants to model in my house. She is actually quite good at it when I give her a chance :-)
Cats for me take an extra set of hands usually for me. Our cat, Scooter, will pose, but it is much shorter and zero following instructions
