Horde of Guinea Pigs! by Clerdy Horde of Guinea Pigs! by Clerdy
Piggies!

Now I've looked at all three shots of your wonderful family before writing this. Out of the three this is my favorite due to the warmer light. did the sun just come through a little on this one or was it the flash?
Either way, applause is due for managing to keep so many piggies on a staircase for the duration of the photo shoot. I can see several of them moving between each picture, and to imagine with the grass so close by to tempt them, just wow, good job.

As for things that possibly could improve the image even further.. Hard to point out that much really, but either having only the staircase in the picture, or cleaning out the clutter in the background would bring even more attention to the nearly 40 points of super cuteness. I know the side-panels were necessary to keep them in place, but they could be photoshopped away by using a picture taken from the exact same angle without any piggies or panels in it.

Another thing is to give more thought to which piggie is placed where. Some places two white next to one another makes each hard to distinguish, same with the black ones. Paying attention to this would bring more focus to the identity of each.

Overall, a really good picture, fantastic idea and well executed, you are lucky to have them :)
What do you think?

Gorgeous picture! WOAH that piggy family is seriously impressive!! How did you get all of them? Do you breed them or something? How many cages do you have? These questions are probably super annoying haha I'm just curious! I've only had two at a time before, and I know that just two is a lot of work! :)

Hahaha this pic is quite old now so a lot of them aren't around anymore unfortunately!

We took it with the help of my brother, mum and neighbour literally putting them back in place every second! You should see the outtakes haha!

My mum still has quite a lot but no where near this many anymore. Probs down to 30 now I think!

How did you get them all to stay put? I had two bunnies that NEVER sat still enough for me to take their picture.
