I was trying to take a picture of Target yesterday for the Katz Tales column (the articles I write for The Star, the Malaysian national daily) but our fuzzy has decided that being the star of the picture is dull.
First he tried to help press the button. He as fast as Bruce Lee and I didn't do a slow-mo so he's a bit blurred. But you can see by his serious expression that he really is trying to help.
When I bought this camera, I forgot that I wanted a built -in lens cover. So I got this pesky thing that dangles by a string.
After several attempts to capture Target's handsome profile, I let go of the lens cover. And having that dangling about proved to be another temptation. Here is Target, chewing on it.
There is excellent detail of his white whiskers and in the big pic sizes you can really appreciate the fuzziness of his feet. But it's not exactly brilliant. And I think unpublishable .....
But I did get one that was half way decent. Here he is, posing nicely on the bed cover.
It's not easy to take pics of cats; not even when they're as cute as Target. I mean, look at this effort! Time taken: 35 mins. Picture quality: so-so.
Will try another photoshoot tomorrow. In the meantime, any tips on how to get better pics would be gratefully appreciated...
Apart from trying to take pics of Target, I have been playing on Facebook. If you are on Facebook, check out my World Literature Quiz and tell me what you think. Should I add more questions? Or is 10 enough already?
