It takes a bit of timing to get some shots just right – dealing with the delayed press of the camera button on taking and saving the digital image – to getting the feline subject to be looking in the right direction just as the picture is taken.

One trick I do is when I am ready to take the shot (and often starting to press the shutter button) I make a small pop or hiss noise with my mouth or click my fingers just above or near the lens or direction I want the cat to face.

If they stare long enough I can then capture nice detailed shots – if they keep moving I just get more blurry pics.

pictures of pussy…

I dumped a bunch of cool photos of some of the cats I have and have had onto DeviantArt.

Within 24hrs of posting and submitting to a handful of DeviantArt groups the recent batch of photos had gained a combined total of about 90 “likes” or “favs”.

So I figured I’d share them here on my blog as well.

I’m Baaack! (Hopefully)

After much messing about trying to figure out how the bad guys were getting in – I’m starting to rebuild the website again. – Some of you who have seen my previous posts I apologise in advance for reposting some of my older material.

If things go smoothly – expect to see more happening soon!

Meanwhile – have a picture of a kitten!
