Today i wanted to test out my 60mm F/2.8 micro lens with Nikon T6 close up lens. So i talked with my new tiger who wants to test it out.

Tango felt flattered so he took a first pose for me a little bit serious one and he was looking straight into the lens!

I asked him to losen up a bit but as you can see he was still very nervous and not really feeling fine. But he tried to not look straight at my camera!

Then i told him some jokes about a mouse and a rat and a cat he really could not stop laughing no more so after this shot i called it a day and asked him to come back for a photoshoot an other time!

I tried to do my best to be patience but sometimes there are other factors that can make a model feel a bit unfine with the situation.

Any tips or suggestions or remarks or other info is very welcome.

The third one is hilarious! But with the 60mm, you must have been almost on top of him??
Yes i was very close. These animals want to know everything. I don't know even wich i took with the T6 on it and wich not. When i took of the T6 he wanted to go inside the 60mm because he saw the lens shine.

But it is really funny these animals find everything interesting. I don't look strange if i open one day my camera bag at a place i want to go shooting and find one of the little tiger cats in my bag!

Cute shots Vince. The third one is a hoot. 8)
Thanks flew,

I am wondering right now if he really was laughing about the jokes i told him or was he allready laughing about the lens he is going to attack to make me stop making photo's of him. I think i must go talk to him tomorrow morning and ask him why he was laughing. If he was lauhging with me about the jokes i told him or if he was laughing at me because of the sneaky plans he maybe is considering with my lenses or other gear.

I hope i can sleep tonight!

Kittens are really a fun thing to shoot. They especially love to play in paper grocery bags lolol

Or a little box on its side is fun.. Oh how about a ball of yarn.

Have fun..

Gale i forgot the joke (hehe) but you are right paperbag or a upside down box is much nicer for a cat. Sometimes i see people buy very exspensive cat toys and special houses for cats. But a cat wants just things that make noise like a newspaper. Or some rope.

Thanks for your reply Gale.
