How the Paparazzi gets my pictures

Some of the doggies wonder how Eil (the Paparazzi in my case) captures my pictures. She doesn't use any high end camera but a simple point and shoot (= dummy) digital camera. She rarely plays with the different settings and just shoots in auto mode. Her criteria is that the camera needs to have auto-focus and anti shake.



Sometimes, she place the camera really near me. (Hey, not so near~)



She uses the highest resolution settings for the camera and it'll turn out to be around a 2048 x 1536 pixel picture of about 5 to 6 Mb in size.



Then, she'll use an image editing software to crop out the surroundings and resize the image size to much smaller. See.. now it looks like she used a pin-hole camera to capture me right. :) Now that you know my photo capturing secrets... If dummy Eil can do it, so can you doggies.

Do the close-ups ever blind you? I don't like the flash in my eyes, which is why I hide my face a lot. Your close-ups are great!

Are you sure it is that easy? Look at us, we are much bigger than you but when Mama takes our picture, it is blurry. So we think Eil is smart unlike that someone who is snapping out photos.

Love

Hi FuFu,
We think it would be impossible not to take good pics of you as you are such a cute model. You certainly aren't camera shy. We love looking at your pics so keep them coming.

Also you are photogenic and comes naturally to some people to snap a photo.

Peanut said...

You take the best pictures FuFu. I don't think I would look that good even if I tried.

Amber-Mae said...

My mommy the poporazzi uses a Canon Digital camera. It's kinda lousy coz it's also anti-shake but it takes really gorgeous pics of ME yes me under the sun, when it's really shiny! This camera also eats up alot of batteries, after ten shots, the batteries are dead. Lousy huh?! Hehehe...

Love licks,

Why don't you have the blue or red contacts that we have in picture?!

Billy said...

Well knowing mom, she wouldn't even be able to do that with the editing software...she gets very frustrated.

BIG hugs from Billy Boo:)

Joe Stains said...

MJ's doghouse said...

hey fufu..i have a great idea..i have decided to charge mommy one treat for every picture she takes...so now she thinks twice before she disturbs me with that darn camera.....maybe you should talk to your papaarazzi

Mary-Margaret said...

Hi, FuFu. I like to read GirlGirl's blog stuff almost as much as yours. You are like a big MOVIE star. Everyone all over the world watches the Famous FuFu. I think you could be the world's first Service Hamster. That means you provide a service to your mom. I keep my mom from stressing out. I wear a little red vest. Wow...I think you'd look really cute in a little red (or blue or yellow or green) Service Vest. Go for it!
