Finally Jodi's Secret Santa reveal - I had some camera troubles (couldn't find the battery charger cord), then used my phone but the photos are not good quality and the pup looked scruffy. Then I could not download them to my laptop. I could do this at work today, but I still was not happy with the quality. So tonite I washed the scruffy pup's face and gathered the loot and off we went to a friend's house for a photo shoot. Thank goodness for friends!

So here is our Secret Santa - it's Milo and Orla! They were so good to us, with sweaters, toys, a cosy blue jacket, and a beautiful, soft throw. You will just have to see it, it's colourful and fun, we love it. Thank you Orla and Milo!

oh no they are sideways...can anyone tell me how to fix this please? thanks.

ummmm, where be the photos?

I have never had so much trouble with photos and uploading but as you can see, they are sideways:w00t:


And also Milo and Orla sent this pretty card. The cat Posey decided to check things out and made sure we had everything.

Yay, finally! So glad to see your reveal--I was waiting for it! Wow, what great presents Jodi got. He was definitely a good boy.

Hope you're settled back home and are getting some much needed rest.

Hi Bren -- I tried to turn all the ones on their side around but could only do 4. Hope it helps. Wow, those are great presents from Orla and Milo. Love the sweater and especially love that blue coat. The color stands out so beautifully with Jodi's hair. So many great gifts like the foxy blanket!! Is that a live little dog (vs a stuffed one) in the photo too? Is that your friend's dog?

Some photos that I took from the first photo shoot at my place. Jodi really does look nice in his new sweaters.

Posey is enjoying the gift wrap and Jodi trying to reach the green frog. His favourite I think. Thank you again Orla and Milo.

He wore that gorgeous vest for New Years Eve, and everyone loved it :thumbsup:

Bribery is how I get photos of Milo. Toys, treats held in one had above the camera in my other lol.
Lighting is important too. I unfortunately don't have good natural light in my house, so I use a flash. But, the flash on cameras will make dogs look kinda creepy with green glowing eyes, and it makes very harsh light too. I use an external flash on my camera, and point it up at the ceiling(which is white, it won't work unless it's white) so the flash bounces off it and creates a much softer light. Natural lighting is by far the best though.

Thanks for the pointers - may I ask what kind of camera you use? Oh and be careful of those buttons on the vest...I know he would have to be a contortionist to reach them while he's wearing it, but I hope he doesn't chew them if it's in his reach.
