Default Why don't most dogs like getting there pictures taken

Ok, I have been trying to get my dogs to let me take a half way decent picture of them today but they just WILL NOT cooperate. I get them in the sit and stay position (and that is REALLY hard to do with three dogs) but the second I pick up the camera they all scatter to different corners of the house! If I do get a picture of them they usually look so miserable that I have to do another one. I usually have to catch them off guard in order to get a pretty good picture of their faces. Usually I end up getting the tops of their heads or the side of their face. My question is WHY do some dogs LOATHE the thought of getting their pictures taken? I mean I think my dogs feel as though it is just pure torture getting their pictures taken. I am really trying to get a good picture of all three of them (or atleast one good picture of each of them) and it just doesn't look like it's gonna happen. Does anyone have any pointers on getting a picture?

Tippy loves the camera. If I have a treat, all I have to do is have her sit or lay down and she poses perfectly for the camera. Colby however, usually has a look on her face like, "Gimme the treat already, girl!" or "aw man is this boring." May gets waaay to close to the camera and I end up with pictures of a big brown and pink nose.
No touchy.

Gus loves having his picture taken!!! I took one of Katelina the other week and not one of him and he flew into a massive 2 hour sulk until I had to get the camera out again and take his pic! Silly boy!

i have camera hams as well, but posing takes learning sit and stay first, then if you succeed there..and can teach hold it as well, you can take a pic like this!

That's a cute picture! Mine already know sit and stay but the second they see that camera they're long gone. If I use a treat they all attack me (with kisses) until they get the treat and I can't get their picture.

My dogs love to get their picture taken. I have to have the camera in my hand though before I even tell them to sit. Having a treat that they can see helps alot.
