REEDSBURG-For some people pets are like family members. They walk them no matter what the weather is like, feed them regularly, dress them up and even use them to attract members of the opposite sex. In other words, pets can be a serious time investment. So why not take pictures of them?

That’s where Dennis Kline’s new digital studio, Critter Camera, comes in. Not only can Kline take the usual pet portraits, he is also a graphic artist. For example, he can put your pet’s image inside of a Christmas ornament, make it pensively stare at it’s own reflection ala Hamlet or give it vampire teeth.

“It’s not limited to dogs and cats; any animal,” Kline said. “I do a lot of Photoshop.”

In addition to studio and location photography, Kline will also digitally enhance existing photos. For example, if a pet dies, he can create a pet memorial using the pet’s image to commemorate its life.
Kline said he cut his teeth doing graphic design for the U.S. Army.

“It’s typical in the Army that they’ll give you a lot of equipment and don’t tell you how to use it,” he said. “They gave me a computer and some graphics programs.”
