Outdoor Photography

When the conditions are just right I love shooting pictures outdoors. This morning I got some great shots because it was early and cloudy and the lighting was perfect. No harsh sunlight! My cat Gehrig is probably the most photographed cat in the world. I love taking pictures of him for several reasons. First, I love the colors of his fur. They are very distinctive and I feel like they just pop in pictures. Second, he is a good cat and will usually pose for me and sit still. His sister, Trixie on the other hand is a terrible subject because she is constantly moving and her fur is almost all white. She is usually just a white blur in pictures. I have learned a lot about photography with Gehrig's help. He doesn't get impatient like a person would and lets me take as many pictures of him as I want. I can use him to try different settings and options. This morning I let him outside to play for the first time in about a week. He was enjoying every minute of it. Here are a few of the pictures from the Gehrig session:-)


  1. I LOVE that first one--I bet you were lying like completely on the ground for that...

  2. Yes I was! Hope the neighbors weren't looking out their windows:-) I love that one too because I got the blurring at the top & bottom.

  3. He is a pretty boy! His eyes are the same color as the grass. I want to pet him immediately! Gehrig come visit your Aunt!
