Avaiable Light Pet Portrait

  1. This 9 year old weighs in at 16 lb, 10 oz, but is not fat, just big boned. He loves to be combed, likes it when we pat him as he eats, and is very trustworthy. Of course I'm not biased.

  2. Very nice portraits of the handsome cat. I am not a cat person myself, but understand the love you have for him.
     
  3. Awww... Reminds me of our "Nickie", now passed!!!! We got him in '76, and he was with us for a very long time!!!
     
  4. Very pretty images, especially the first one.
    I find cats to be very photogenic, a great subject to shoot candids with.

    Very nice pictures!
    Problem with my cat is, that when he sees the camera he'll race for the door!:mad:

    Very nice cat!
    The facial expression when being photographed reminds me of our own cat which passed away three months ago.

    Hi Fred,
    no, we didn`t want a "new" cat so far. Maybe some time has to pass before we are getting one again.

    Very handsome cat and a most excellent capture's. Cats are excellent subject to hone your technique and test the low light gathering ability of lens and body. Cat picture's like this, are one of the reason's I was attracted to the cafe in the first place. Keep them coming.
     
  11. Make sure to post a pic when you get one.
    Fred

    Thanks Steve!

    You can bet, Fred :smile:.
     
  14. Cats are either 250th and faster shutter speed or 15th and slower...

    I like to be set for one and have the cats do the other.

    That way I don't feel frustrated with the real world.

    Cats help put things in their proper perspective.
     
  15. Here's one of our 3 felines:
