My latest Cat Close Up Challenge is our favourite ginger friend Angus. It was taken with my new camera and I am showing him off on Brian’s Thankful Thursday because I am thankful his picture came out!

My Cat Close Up Challenge

I am trying different settings for cat portraits, as my camera has a lot more things to adjust than a point and shoot (although that and my smartphone are go to cameras for fast stuff!)

To my surprise I got close and Angus our ginger snap buddy didn’t move.

It helps that it’s quite chilly outside and he took possession of a cosy fleece blanket!

Cat Close Up

Our challenge isn’t Mission Impossible but took a bit of doing! We are getting better as our cat close up of Chenzou at the cat cafe.

Do your cats sit still long enough for pictures?

  1. Lovely close up of Andy! He even decided to look! , Pipo will not pose, let alone look…its only petcretary’s clevfur tactics that get some pics of me with my eyes open and looking. I like to pretend to be shy. Actually I hate the intrusiveness of any camera, and petcretary does not use flash. So its not that…
    Petcretary: I do much better when I use the zoom feature on my Canon P & S camera. There is a digital SLR here, belongs to hubby, but I have not ever attempted to use it! Why, I don’t even use all the features on my own camera! MOL!
