In July we had our first ever Pet Photography Contest on Facebook. The winners were these two lovely felines Toby and Tina. I love furry animals, dogs and cats alike. I miss my big dog Jake, a happy go lucky Samoyed. But we do have four kitties, Lutu, Lester, Lulu Bell, and Leo. At least one of them wakes me up every night… I know, I know, I should close my door, but then I miss them I have taken many photographs of them over the years. But I think it is different photographing someone else’s pets, just like it is photographing someone else’s children. So, hence the Pet Contest. Photographing pets definitely presents challenges, such as, how do you get them to stay in one place long enough for you to take the perfect shot? Or more specifically, how do you get them to stay in the spot that has the perfect lighting long enough for you to get the shot? Hmmm…. well I can only imagine, like anything, it comes with practice. These two kitties were curious, so that is one thing that I had going in my favor. At least they didn’t go hide under a bed, or the like! They were super sweet and I love these pictures! Congrats on winning Samantha and Andres, hope you like the pictures as much as I do!
