Each Cat to Their Own

Posted on Posted in About the Shot, Pet portraits

Booker is so naturally photogenic. It’s like he sees the lens as an extension of my eye. Noob on the other hand tries to see behind the lens to the ‘real’ me. Consequently, it’s MUCH more difficult to photograph Noob – as if he wasn’t difficult enough being a black cat that steals all the available light.

It’s really impossibly to say that I love one or the other’s posing style more.  Booker is lovely and accomodating, and Noob is so naturally ‘cat’. It’s impossible to set a method that works for all pets. I can’t even make it work with these two!Conifer Cougar
