This image is of Patchouli, my own bundle of
grumpiness joy staring through the sitting room window at birds on the deck and in order to get this image I had to sneak up on her by photographing her from outside the house. Cats are contrary creatures and if you have ever tried to photograph a cat you’ll know that it’s not always easy. Those fiendish felines have a mind of their own and if they don’t want to do something you can stand on your head or bounce off the walls and it won’t make any difference. Despite that, we all adore our cats don’t we? The best advice I can give you when photographing your own furry darling is be patient and be ready, so that when the opportunity arises you’ll be able to capture that special moment, chances are your cat will only give you one chance to get it right!
Here’s a cute cartoon from Doug Savage that says it all…
All my love
