This may become another 'hobby' that will cut into my sleep hours again. Like blogging isn't bad enough.
Cat-tip-for-the-day=^..^=photographing our feline friend.
I'm no expert, that's for sure, but I have learned a few things recently about photographing cats.
First, if you can, go to the cat. Do not pick the cat up to put it where you want it to be photographed. That usually will not work well. It is better to wait until you see the cat in a perfect spot, in a perfect position with just the right lighting to take advantage and get the perfect shot.
Never use a flash.
Stay quiet and un-obtrusive.
Take many photos with the hopes of ending up with 1 perfect one.
And here is the most important tip I can give you...Have your camera handy at all times if you live with a cat. You will be amazed at all the opportunities that come your way, throughout the day, to get that amazing photograph. I can't think of anything that makes a more beautiful addition to any photograph than a CAT.
I received a very pretty card in the mail yesterday." Thank you, Linda" from A La Carte for the sweet birthday greeting. You wrote such a nice message about your love of cats and concern for the home-less ones. It made me happy to know you enjoy my blog. With our postal strike everything is late arriving so it was a lovely surprise for sure. Drop over to meet Linda athttp://ljm-alacarte.blogspot.com/ and say "hi". She's a dish-lover, like me.
This one's a keeper
