Yesterday I had my first formal animal shoot.

A friend has commisioned me to produce a pair of pictures of Tina as a Christmas present for their son.

Although she is an aging cat she seemed to enjoy playing "Let's mess with the Photographer's Mind" and I must have spent a couple of hours before she finally decided to co-operate! Smile

Getting the lighting right was a pig as we were using natural room light and she has a wide range of colour tones in her fur.

It was great fun though as we have recently lost our last cat and I had forgotten what little devils they could be.

This shot captures her in a "What are you going to do next" sort of pose.

The main thing is that I seem to have met the customers requirements and now have to produce two different framed pictures.

I'm not sure I shall rush to do it again though?

Sorry about your cat. This one is a beauty and you have captured her beautifully. She's a stunner - right little poser!

thanks for the votes and comments all.

We've come to terms with it Marilyn as she was very ill but it is strange not having a "Furry Friend" constantly underfoot.


Thanks for the mods Willie, I see the colour difference but think we are maybe in the realms of calibration differences and personal taste?

The colour shown reflects the shooting conditions (warm sunlight through the lounge window) and what the customer wanted (a more "memorial" shot rather than a precise colour matched record)
