The Trouble with Photographing Cats


I have always wanted to be able to take amazing photos of cats, but sadly it turns out that cats aren't as easy to snap a photo of as you might think.

After taking heaps a failed photos...

...I finally decided to go a watch a video to find out what I was doing wrong.

As soon as I finished watching, I grabbed my camera again and took some more photos. This time they turned out much better.

I played around with the shutter speeds, took some photos using the flash, tried to capture the cat's personalities better, and played around with the angles.

I'm rather proud of my photos.

Do you like cats? Which is your favourite photo?

    They're cute in pictures, but I'm always afraid of being scratched, lol.
