Photographing Cats—A Photo Set + Linky

If you are like me, photography is always a fun and engaging creative activity. While I personally enjoy taking nature photographs, I find that a change of subject matter can be a stimulating challenge. Admittedly, I am relative novice in this new photographic area, so I decided to take a portrait approach to capture the essence of my two most unreliable companions/chair + bed stealers/and in all other ways truly obnoxious members of my small family with seemingly insatiable appetites: yes, I am talking about the two true leaders of my household, my cats: Mr. Oliver and Mr. Ian.

Photographing cats, I discovered, is much more challenging than one would initially think based on their normal behavioral patterns; which is to say, they seem to eat, use the litter box, lounge about wherever they desire and sleep at all hours of the day while barely relocating from one activity to the next. What is most confounding is that when you approach them to take their picture, they seem to instantly begin to move about, purr loudly (demanding treats), and rub against your leg.

Of my two feline rulers, Mr. Oliver proved to be the more willing participant; consequently, I only have one closeup photo to show for my efforts of Mr. Ian. I will note that I have been at this project for the past few months, and I am only now able to share the best results of my many failed photo shoots. Enjoy!
