Each time I try something new, I see small improvements in my photog skills. *pats self on back*
Dallas -- the black mink catboy of my menagerie -- has always been impossible to photograph. His silky coat reflected (or is it absorbed?) the light and he just looked like a huge fuzzy ball. Which, yes he is a huge fuzzy ball but in photos he was more huge, more fuzzy, and less ballsy than usual.
But yesterday I whipped out the camera and figured out how to capture his silky look without being a slave to the automatic setting. Here he is in his natural habitat otherwise known as the 'kitchen' waiting to be fed.
Meet Dallas. He likes long walks on the kitchen counter, candle lit bowls of kibble, and endless petting sessions. To leave a message for him press 7486 followed by the pound key.
