Take Great Photos of Your Cat

Take Great Photos of Your Cat

Is it possible to take great photos of your cat -- without the help of a professional photographer? After all, cats move quickly and often turn their heads or become uncooperative at the wrong moment. Some cats are simply afraid of the camera. A certain cartoon cat, Garfield, also says, “I’ll rise, but I won’t shine.” With time and patience, however, even the most camera-shy cat will eventually be ready for a close-up.

To best prepare for your photo shoot with your cat, begin by focusing on its comfort. This is easily accomplished by spending some cuddle time in a quiet space. Hold your camera in your hand nearby so your cat can investigate. Once trust is established with the camera, try a few test shots while you’re both relaxed.

Consider the hungry cat, just before mealtime, in a lovely surrounding. Why? A hungry cat is often attentive and persuaded. This provides a perfect opportunity to lure your feline into that pile of rose petals or a basket of catnip you so cleverly arranged.

Can’t get your cat’s attention? Try finding a cute or funny moment during naptime. If you have a digital camera, quantity is on your side. Take as many photos as you can and learn from them as you go. You just might surprise yourself by capturing a candid moment that could become the new family favorite.
