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.

A happy dog...a sad dog...a goofy dog. These are all images from Tails From the Booth, an absolutely delightful book about Man’s Best Friend. In 2006, photographer Lynn Terry, inspired by her love of dogs, agreed to help a local dog rescue by photographing a couple of their dogs in need of ‘forever homes.’ She came up with the novel idea of taking photos of those dogs in a recreation of an old-fashioned photo booth. And the rest, as they say, was history. The photos flew across the internet, racking up huge numbers of hits, likes and shares. Inspired to help even more rescue dogs find permanent homes, Lynn tweaked her photo booth and set to work sharing more photos. Soon afterwards, a book was suggested and Tails From the Booth was born. Over 100 pages of photos (with a few pages of text here and there) of adorable dogs posing in a photo booth are captured in this book. Most pages have four shots per page, with one to three dogs in each shot and a nice mixture of color and sepia tone images. There are several pages of text by the author/photographer explaining how the idea was born, what she does to capture the dogs’ attention, and at the back of the book head shots, along with names, of all the dogs who participated in the making of this book. What made the original photos so popular, and that is replicated within the pages of this book, are the personalities of the dogs that come screaming through loud and clear. While the single dog photos are nice, my favorites are those with two or three dogs. Why? Because you can really see the personalities and relationships the dogs have with each other. From loving (tongues out, licking each other) to total annoyance (eyes rolling, like a child who is upset at his/her sibling), it’s as if you know what they are thinking. I dare anyone to look through the pages of this book and tell me that dogs don’t have distinct personalities. I also dare you to go through the book and try to keep a straight face. Tails From the Booth will cheer up the grouchiest person. Quill says: Having a bad day? Need a good laugh? If so, (and even if you’re having a great day!) then I suggest you check out Tails From the Booth. I guarantee you’ll be smiling from ear to ear after scrolling through its pages.
Do you need a pick-me-up from a bad day? Tails from the Booth is the perfect way to cheer you up. One look at this book’s cover and I couldn’t help from smiling. Tails from the Booth has over 100 photos of dogs making funny faces and striking silly poses. The photos are taken in a photo booth background which adds a fun setting for the dogs. A photo booth brings to mind fun times with friends, squeezing close together and making funny faces. But who would have thought a group of dogs would have the same great time. These dogs are absolutely adorable and author Lynn Terry clearly captured their personalities. There are photos of dogs sitting still, licking each other, and playing with each other. I can’t decide which my favorite photo is. Included with the photos is the author’s brief story. As a professional photographer Lynn Terry has always had a love for everything vintage. So when she decided to take photos of dogs for a local pit bull rescue group she used old curtains reminiscent of old photo booth drapes. The results of the photo shoots were better than she expected and everyone she shared it with loved them. Because of this great experience she experimented with different backdrops and dogs. But the project was put aside until the death of her beloved dog DeeDee. She regretted not taking any pictures with DeeDee so she started the photo booth series to photograph owners with their dogs. The owners loved the photos Lynn Terry took. Once her photos were shared online the news spread around the world and we are now enjoying Lynn Terry’s work. As an animal lover and a dog owner I love the photos she captured. You can see the intelligence, emotion and playfulness from all of these dogs. This is a collection I will share with all my family and friends. I received this book as a member of the XOXperts, XOXO After Dark’s official street team, in exchange for an honest review.
