Here we are again, post your cats!
There was a lot of nice feedback on my previous journal. And a total of 58
cat photos linked. Not bad at all! But this time around, I'll set some "rules".
One photo per deviant Photo must be submitted today, January 27th
It doesn't matter when the photo was captured
So, get busy!
I've gotten notes, e-mails and comments asking for tips about photographing cats. So I figured I'd post some general tips for cat photos. Or at least, how I do it.
Light! Lots of light. Natural light is best, light bulbs and fluorescent light often cause color casts
in the photos. You should avoid using the cameras internal flash as you often get "demonic" eyes.
Have someone with you. It's easier to take a photo if someone is with you to distract the cat or kitten using a toy.
Get down to where the cat or kitten is. It's usually better to get down on the same level as the cat or kitten. Unless your intention is to photograph from above. Experiment with different angles.
Try not cutting off feet or ears when you take the photo. If you want, you can crop it
to suit your needs.
Most people use digital cameras now. So take LOTS of photos! It's free, and you can discard any bad photos later on.
Resize and sharpen your images before submitting! Unless your images are for stock usage there is no need to submit huge files. There is free software
available to do this for you.
Most important, have fun
Have a great weekend everyone! I'm off to process my Caturday submission.
