Furry friends meet photo booths in this quirky photography book that captures all the cute canine action when the leashes come off and the dogs are the star of the show. If dogs could take selfies, it might look something like Tails from the Booth. For this adorable collection of photographs, Lynn Terry draws on more than twenty years of professional photography experience to capture the most endearing moments between canine companions: A couple of pitbulls grinning widely at the camera. Two saggy-faced bulldogs bumping jowls. A Pomeranian, an English bulldog, and a Boston terrier dog-piling (of course) on top of each other. These pictures show the countless ways dogs will ham it up in front of a camera, and that more dogs in a photo booth = even more fun! With all the charm of Underwater Dogs and Shake, Tails from the Booth will make you laugh out loud at all the awkward and endearing ways dogs make friends with each other.
Tails from the Booth by Lynn Terry offers one hundred and twenty-eight pages that are sure to make you smile. Within the pages of this hardcover collection you will see some of the cutest, furriest, sweetest faces of man’s best friends. All of them taken against a backdrop that will remind you of a vintage photobooth. An absolute must have for dog lovers.
In between all of the adorable, sometimes silly and often bashful faces the author shares how she created the first images of dogs in an attempt to help save pit bulls. She took pictures of two dogs licking each other and created a snapshot similar to those from a vintage photo booth. She posted the photo online thinking her clients would enjoy it. The photo was done without a watermark and it quickly spread. It began appearing as banners on websites, mostly for shelters. She then did one with pit bulls and it went viral. The Huffington Post picked it up and eventually publishers contacted her..the rest as they say is history.
The author shares stories about her own dog Dee-Dee and her love affair with dogs. It is touching and heartwarming. She explains the photo process which only makes you appreciate the photos. The back of the book includes headshots and the names of all the dogs pictured. I dare you not to fall in love with all of them.
Tails from the Booth is the perfect coffee table book for dog lovers. It would make a wonderful holiday gift for those hard to buy for shoppers on your list, and the perfect pick me up for that friend who is ill.
