Trying to capture our cats photographically has always been something of a challenge. Our big orange tabby (who is no longer as orange as he used to be), Ferro, is the easier of the two. Luna, being black as night, seems to show up as all shadow, no form.
Yesterday, after getting the new tripod head fixed and usable, I had to play for a little while. With most of our garden as crispy as a fall leaf thanks to precious little rain, there is nothing in bloom. That left me with cats for subject matter. Luckily, mid-afternoon, they are both pretty somnolent.
If anyone has any advice for trying to shoot dark furred critters, PLEASE send the ideas along.
