Would you adopt any of these dogs from the photo?

    Okay, so tonight was my first "session" volunteering at my local animal shelter. The "get aquainted" room for the dogs was approx 10'x10'x15'. The slanted ceiling had two 2'x4' fluorescent fixtures, wall painted a sickly yellow and a grey floor.

    I only skimmed the website that these photos will be placed on (Petfinders.com) and my memory certainly fails me now. But I think these might have a slightly different slant to the norm. I played with each dog for quite a while before grabbing the camera. I tried to capture a bit of their character. These are not necessarily supposed to be artistic, more on the order of function.

    Without any further ado.......

    Tell me what you think. Am I doing the animals any justice to finding a home?

    The pictures are good that they show some character and personality. People (as in the adults) are going to want to see full body images as well. And from different angles. Did you get those shots as well?

    Considering the light, you did pretty good. I hope they all find homes too.

    I'd adopt all of them if I didn't already have a dog..

    But picture wise they are really cute.

    missy I'd take one of her full face.. Some people might like to see what it all looks like

    and booboo I'd probably clean her eyes a little..

    also You can't really tell the size of the dogs that well in those pics.. like mike jordan said you might want to take full body shots..

    Funny you should ask Mike. Not meaning to bore anyone, but this is a mission I'm on. I just wanted to get critique from you guys and girls before I proceed to far down a particular path.

    Full body shots.

    I took a shot of his card just get the details. Honestly, I can't read the persons writing. In my best guess, he is probably about....less than a year old. Very playful, loved licking.........I think I might leave that just where it's at, no need to push what already has a head of steam.

    Thanks for asking. To anybody reading this, I am not trying to adopt these animals here on this forum. I am asking if the photos you have viewed are any good. That's it. I want to do the best for these animals, but I know there is a time and a place for everything.

    Again, thanks for your comments.

    Thats a loaded question. As I have 5 dogs now and if I had the room I'd adopt 5 more. Nice photos and it's a great thing you're doing.

    Nice job getting the full length shots as well. You never know what will be the look that will entice someone down to take a closer look. And that's half the battle.

    Keep up the good work on helping these dogs. They need all the help they can get and many of them deserve a chance at a good home.

    Mike

    Thanks everyone for your comments Many of you had commented on BooBoo. I spent about 15-20 minutes with her and she is a lovely dog. Fun to be around.

    I went to the Petfinders website to have a look around and it became immediately apparent that I am doing the right thing. The card each animal has that gives details about it had not been marked as "photographed". This is what I found already posted for BooBoo.

    Sad in my opinion.

    I'd keep an eye on the white balance, very yellowish/ tungsten cast on many of them. The BW of BooBoo is lovely.:thumbup:
