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!
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?
