Cataday

Well thought I would show off a few shots of my cats and give this neglected blog and updating! So here are a few catshots.

All shots taken with Canon 400D
Sigma 70-300mm macro
Tripod 055XPROB + 322RC2

For exif data save and review properties of the thumbnail version only – exif not attached to larger versions of shots.

The Old Black Cat

Our oldest cat and mother/grandmother to the rest, though she is scared of her offspring she was the first (and almost only) cat to stand up to the husky!

The Tabby

Had some great fun playing around with these shots – taken handheld right on the ground, hence the green grass poking in the bottom of the shots. We are not 100% sure what happened, but this little one got in a fight with something and got a part of her nose cut off.

same settings, but a shift in local light meant a warmer hue cast to the shot

going for a slightly greater depth of field to this one

Sadly its been so long since I took these that I can’t remember why I used such a high ISO value – from what I recall it was a bright day so shooting should have been good, though chances were that I was trying to keep my shutter speed up whilst shooting with exposure compensation (to counter the bright sun and reduce the chances of blown highlights) and yet keep the greater depth of field of a smaller aperture. Regardless the results have come out really well I feel.
