It was so good to see Ziva's eyes widen with excitement that I went for my best low-light camera, swapped the lens on it for a wide aperture prime, and did a series of shots. Most were "meh", until finally she looked up at just the right angle to get some light in her eyes. Yay! I caught the moment, and was lucky enough to also catch her tongue extended and curled. (Parents don't want pictures of their children with tongues out, but, hey folks, Ziva is a dog!) This may have a place in the Ziva book that is a work in progress.
Now to set up for a studio portrait session with a nice couple. Ziva is even a good warm-up for people photography!
