It took longer to move the table and fight with the camera than it did to actually photograph guinea pigs this year. Usually we have issues with focus, depth of field and uncooperative rodents. This year's problem was the flash. I deleted nearly half the photos for being too dark (frustrating!), but the rest were clear and well lit. I had more than enough usable photos after two short shoots.

Their good behavior means I don't have a whole lot of truly goofy outtakes. I've whittled down the photos to the three "good" ones that go on our Christmas cards. There's a bunch more left; some of those are arguably better than the card photos, but don't make the final cut because they don't crop well to a 4x6 size or one pig isn't as cute/funny as the other. So I'll inundate you with more holiday pigs in another post - they're too cute not to share!
