HOW TO TAKE BETTER PHOTOS OF YOUR CAT
1 Keep your camera on high-continuous shoot mode. This way your camera will take two or more photos very quickly, so if your kitty moves it should capture the good parts more easily.
2 Bring a small jingly toy or anything that gets your cat's attention so that you can get her to look up while you are taking photos. I usually bring a toy that Suki never sees unless we are out photographing; that way she isn't already bored of it.
3 Cats love to sit up high, so I will often place Suki on a larger rock or log and she will just sit down instead of walking away.
4 If you are trying to get close-up face shots, it helps to have someone hold your kitty in a comfortable position. Suki loves to be held with her front paws resting on your shoulder and will stay very still in this position. When your kitty is extremely still it allows your camera to really focus on the macro details.
5 Try to shoot during early morning/sunrise and late evening/ sunset. This is when the light is best for preserving detail and soft tones. Shooting at midday often causes harsh shadows and blown out highlights.
Martina’s Harness Recommendations
For an inconspicuous harness that is more for photos, I use the Come With Me Kitty harness. It is very slim but comfortable and doesn't grab away any attention in the photos.
