Photographing Cats: New Angles
This shot of Benjamin is a keeper! Photographing cats, particularly black cats, can be challenging and often you get more butts that faces. Over time even the good shots you get can tend to look repetitive. I have a whole series of “cat in box” and “cat at windowsill.” New angles mean new opportunities.
This shot looks a little fresher because of how I shot it. If I rub my hands quickly on the wall, Benjamin will stand on his hind legs and try to grab my hands. This time I leaned in and held my camera in my right hand pressed against the wall pointed down at him as I began teasing him with the other hand. This is the moment right before he jumped. Love those beautiful eyes!
I think the expression on his face and the tilt of his head will translate well into one of my future polymer piece. What do you think?
