Beginner Cat Photo Skills

All American Pet Photo Day 2024

July 11th is the day all pet lovers grab their cameras and celebrate pet photography on All American Pet Photo Day. For Dash Kitten this means CATS.

I am celebrating with some links to useful cat photo posts, and cat photos. The tips work for other pets too, of course! Please take a moment to explore a post to boost your cat photo skills

All American Pet Photo Day is joyfully celebrated each year on July 11. It is a day solely dedicated to appreciating our lovable pets who make life better every single day. While our pets almost always enjoy the limelight, this day encourages us to make it even more special and make them the main focus all day.

If you want to try something easy that might surprise you, try working in Black and White. Here are a few helpful tips to inspire you. You can change your photos before or after to take them. Tody is a great time, celebrate Pet Photo Day with a successful shot!

Your Smartphone and Great Cat Photos

Yes, your smartphone takes great photos. They excel in taking photos when a mirrorless or DSLR camera might falter because of poor settings. Get to know the camera settings of your own smartphone and use them to make your cat photos even better.

Never be afraid to take a photo and All American Pet Photo Day is the day to try. Editing can bring out details you don’t realise are there and filters can transform the whole image. If you don’t believe me, check out my Snapseed review.
