Cat photography is not an easy job!

I thought it would be nice to have some new photos of Emmie Cat since she has grown a little since we got her a little over a month ago.  I have tried several times over the past month to get some good shots of this cat but it is not an easy task.  

She never stops moving!

I did manage to get a shot of her (shown above) but of course her ears are cut off!  :)

This is the only decent shot I got out of today’s photo session.  Of course, she is sleeping.

Like the title of this post says – Cat photography is not an easy job!

    Ha!!! I just spent an hour and a half on LOLcats. That’s some good wholesome fun isn’t it?

    Love Emmie Cat. She’s so precious!

    I totally agree that cats/animals are very hard to photograph. A fast DSLR camera definitely helps..

    Here are a few links taken with my 4 frames per second camera and they are stilll really moving around.

    My only advise is to practice a steady hand and take lots of shots in a row (consecutively without a flash) and hope that you might get one good shot.

    Evolving,

    I am addicted to LOLcats and have spent more time on that site than I care to admit. :)

    Emmie is the best cat with my kids. She is so sweet to them even if they never leave her alone. They love her…sometimes, too much.

    Expatraveler,

    I loved your photos. The one of the kitty jumping in the air was the best. I am going to buy a new camera as soon as we get a little money ahead. I would love to have a DSLR but I think it would be too much of an investment right now since I would have to buy all the gear too.

    You are right about the flash. It is not good with animals. It only scares our kitty or she shuts her eyes.

    I’ve got a few recommendations on cameras when you are ready, but also check out http://www.dpreview.com or http://www.kenrockwell.com. Those are great sites.

    Expatraveler,
    I would love to have your advice on which camera to buy. I hope we will be able to buy one this month and then I can give mine that I am currently using to my oldest daughter.
