Key pieces for this kitty puzzle
1 Plain backdrop
A plain backdrop helps us to control the light, and makes our shots look uncluttered and considered as we’re drawn to the cat and its behaviour.
2 Two lights
Two lights provide a good spread of light to ensure both the backdrop and the cat are evenly exposed (see page 36 for more on using studio lights).
3 String and toys
Have some toys or some string to hand. Cats can make really interesting shapes with their bodies as they jump and twist to play with the toys.
4 Adorable cat
To get a good shot, you need to have a good subject. Luckily, cats are all inherently beautiful, and they have the added benefit of being cute, too.
