Fur and Paws

Posted on Updated on

Whenever any furry critter is around, I will be the first person to focus in and attempt to cuddle, kiss, and of course take photos of them. I have 5 pets myself, so I have a lot of opportunity to practice. It can be very tricky, especially when they don’t trust the big metal contraption you keep trying to shove in front of their face. But, in the end, the reward of the perfect (or almost perfect… Or flawed-but-strangely-perfect) photo is enough.

Again, these photos were taken on my phone and filters were used. Not all of them turned out the way I hoped, but I still loved each one.

    Two in the same day! 😄

    That’s quite the menagerie you’ve got there. I suppose now with a new camera on the way we’ll be seeing even more.

    By the way, I have a few friends with 6Ds. If you do any low light stuff you’re going to love the high ISO performance.

      That was exactly why I chose that camera 🙂

        Please don’t hate me, but you may be wishing you went with the 7D2 if you plan to do a lot of pet photography. My understanding is the AF is nothing to write home about.

        Poop! Well, there’s time for me to think more. It’s not even here, yet lol. I can always exchange it. I should really think about my priorities more… I’ve already done some events, so doing pets will take more time to build up, but I should think about whether pets are my ultimate goal… Hmm… Thanks!

        Don’t get me wrong, it’s still a great camera. I’ve got a friend down in CT who just started doing weddings and he’s using a 6D. His photos tell me he isnt having any issues with AF. With fast moving pets or wildlife you may see problems, but I think the high iso capabilities will more than make up for it.
