Actually, I don’t know how to photograph cats.
I don’t really know how to photograph at all. I ask for help, and people help me. The rest of the time I just throw stuff and see what sticks. Sometimes I really want to throw the camera or the cat.
My most recent experiment was to try the tripod. I was having this problem taking photos of the cats because I didn’t have an assistant to do the cat wrangling when I took the photos, so the animals were always running away before I could get a shot (possibly why I always have photos of their rear ends.)
The camera has this neat little thing that lets you take photos remotely! You can see me pointing it in a lot of the photos. This is so cool! Now I can work with the cat and take the photos! Now I only need to worry about tripping over the lights, blocking the lights or getting my ass in the photo. And loosing the little tiny remote thing. It’s really small!
