Dark cats get warm in the summer sun but cats like Phoebe know to find the best shade!
Welcome to the 2019 Pet Parade, home of the wonderful Wordless Wednesday and Wordy Wednesday posts you are proud to show off.
I am continuing my dark cat portrait exploration with another picture of our black cat Phoebe. She is a youngster and hasn’t developed the ‘not interested’ attitude of most of the Dash Kitten Crew when they are photographed.
Dark Cat Portrait of Phoebe
I used P mode, which is a step up from Canon AUTO, and tried changing the ISO to 200. A first step in exploring Settings a little.
As you can see, Phoebe definitely looks like a dark brown cat, not a black panther. The background looks nicely out of focus which I am pleased with. I am hoping the asparagus fern makes a lovely frame, as the focus is meant to be on Phoebe’s lovely face and whiskers. What do you think?
DEFINITION: In very basic terms, ISO is a camera setting that will brighten or darken a photo. As you increase your ISO number, your photos will grow progressively brighter.Photography Life
I am going to look at ISO a bit more and report back as it sounds like a good thing to know more about.
