We are joining Brian today to celebrate a senior cat and junior cat from our family at Dash Kitten.
Both were taken using the RAW option on my DSLR, and I was able to sharpen the fur using Affinity. Fur is something I am getting better at taking pictures of but it’s taking time to learn.
Senior Cat Harvey
This picture breaks a lot of the rules for composition that I set out here. Harvey is right in the middle of the picture and he is not in focus and some of his
Harvey is a senior and a little bit frail, so capturing a picture while I had the chance even without perfect settings was more important to me. I am still working on having a general ‘go to’ setting on the camera ready for that quick photograph.
Sometimes you just need to go for the shot.
Junior Cat Miranda
This picture was taken this year and is one of my favourites of Miranda.
The colours and branches around her are a busy contrast framing her, but Miranda stands out wonderfully. I did not adjust the colours in RAW. There is a touch of autumn in the air and the leaves are changing.
Junior Cat Video
Do you remember seeing Miranda climbing a tree in our video back in 2017? New readers may not have seen it so I will add it here. The video was fun and easy to make.
This means you can make one too. Give it a go with your smartphone.
If you want to challenge yourself to do more with your DSLR or smartphone camera, why not check out our quick challenge. I have created some easy prompts to encourage and inspire your picture taking and movie making.
Join us as we celebrate things we are thankful for with Brian and the gang! Happy Thursday, the week-end will soon be here!
