Cat photography, for most people, is a way to remember their pets’ funny actions and playing around. But actually, cat pictures require more talent to move to the next level and become professional cat photographs.
When taking cat pictures, you need a special talent in order to choose the right moment for taking the shot, especially because you are taking photos of a continuously moving and active creature that you cannot control. In order to succeed in cat photography and predict the next move of your cat, you will need some practice and a good understanding of animal behavior. So, before you start taking cat pictures, you may need to consider the following tips to help you get professional cat images of your favorite pet:
- You need to keep your cat in the photography location. So, you can keep the cat busy with its favorite treat or toy while you are taking the photos.
- Keep the background of the scene clear and simple. The background of cat pictures should help focusing on the cat itself. Thus, it needs to be simple and in contrast with the cat’s colors.
- Lower your camera level to the cat’s level. This will help getting cat images from the correct perspective. This point of view will also help you get nice, detailed cat pictures.
- Get natural shots. When you take cat pictures, try to shoot their cute nature and funny actions by watching them and try to take photos during the cat’s playtime.
On the other hand, try to avoid digital camera flash, because it will disturb the cats when shooting them. Also, long photography sessions are not recommended, because the cat will get bored fast, which will affect the spontaneous nature of the shots.
In this post I would like to showcase some cat photography examples with you, which I hope you will enjoy, and comment on them with your ideas. And don’t forget to let us know your favorite cat pictures.
