I'm pretty sure my camera has another setting that my brother changed to the jag. I took that picture of maddie after you taught us about natural light . We always take better pictures on tables because they stay put. I have been trying to teach with treats posing where I want them.
The table is a good idea, Suzi... for your reason and another. With children and animals, you always get better photos if you get down at their eye level.
...If you put them on a table, "eye level" isn't SO far down!
