I made myself a to do list, and I need a picture of the brats all together in a line. You may say simple 2 whole pictures. But this is 3 cats, 2 guinea pigs, and 1 rabbit all to stare at the camera. I need 1 just plain with them all, then them all with their super hero tshirts, then 1 for Christmas (but I havent gotten their christmas outfits from the dollar store). I know Im insane, and attempting this tomorrow for my scrapbooking album.

Good luck! Like Kash I'm sitting here laughing too, picturing it. I think that would be the greatest pic ever. I hope you can post it here because I, for one, would love to see it. My mother was a very good photographer and when we were kids we had a dog, 2 cats and a rabbit. She got a picture of them all sitting around the fireplace. It was a cute picture and came out really good. She didn't have to pose them, though. They just happened to all be sitting there, hanging out together, I guess. They weren't wearing any cute clothes, as back in the 50's pet clothes weren't as popular as they are now. Of course the mice, hamsters and turtle weren't in the picture. They were better off in their cages/fish bowl, away from the cats.

They always pose when I dont have the camera around. But I will attempt it to see how it goes. But I will certainly post it when I take them to show everyone.

You mean you need a model for the photo shoot? He he sorry I can't. Meoow! Meooow! I have another pictorial. Kidding aside, I hope you find pictures of those cute creatures and just group them using an online application. Have a nice day!

Photoshop! or some other photo manipulation software should do the trick.

I don't know how to do that, and I don't have the programs. I want it to look nice for my album.

Well, at least you admit it... I can't even get all three cats in one shot. Forget trying to get them to look at the camera. As soon as I grab the camera, someone has gotten distracted by something elsewhere. I don't think that taking them for a professional photo would work much differently.

I thought about doing it professionaly but it would cost too much. I didnt have time today but I may try tomorrow.

It's not insane, it's a funny idea actually. Despite the cuteness of your idea, it might be tough one. Maybe you can try to hang something in your cam that looks interesting for them. And some sort of training for them maybe. That's really funny.. goodluck to you though!

I was thinking of bringing some treats up to get them to pay attention.

Good plan overall. should see how they give the pose to the photograph. I am sure you will dress them the best. waiting for the picture.

Oh my gosh, I'm just sitting here laughing my head off just thinking about it! I hope it works for you and you do share the picture. I wish I could be standing next to you when you are trying to accomplish this as I think it would be the funniest and best picture ever! Good luck! Could you possibly give them all some food in front of them to do this? Would that help at all, even to get them to sit in a row? I just can't wait and really look forward to this one.

I was thinking of that bring out the treats, which would work for the guinea pigs, and rabbit most likely. But the cats are tricky, I;ll need a few helping hands for this one.

The best suggestion I have is to first take a picture of the background you want to use. Then take a picture of the 3 cats, a picture of the 2 guinea pigs, and the last picture of the guinea pig; take 2 pictures for each group (one without t-shirt, one with t-shirt). Now just use Photoshop or a similar program and set each animal group to individual layers; set the picture from the first step as your background. All you have to do from there is just move the animals around and viola! It may not look professional at first but I'm sure you can do some slight tweaking to make it look like they all got together for the picture.

I don;t have any skills with that, and I want to do it for an album. I will ask a few people to help and entertain with toys even if they arnt looking right at the camera.

Wow, good luck with that one. I've tried to take pictures of my children along with my nieces, making a total of five children and I have a hard time getting all five of them to look at the camera and smile at the same time, I couldn't begin to imagine how difficult it would be to take a picture of six animals all at the same time. The best suggestion that I can give to you is to take two separate pictures of each image and merge the two of them together. This is something that is really easy to do with photo manipulation software.

Hello Ricki, Nyahahahaha - I wonder what would have happened if you do. though like some one said photoshop can do the trick, having them all together and picture them like a class picture haha. don't worry am sure they know each other way too well that they won't scramble like some usual animals in the wild
