Not just Birds and Cats – other critters too

First of all, welcome to all the followers who found me via my Guest Blog on Leanne Cole’s site yesterday, so glad you took the time to come over and check out my work.

Got a few comments about my cat pictures and it made me realise that I forget to post my work of OTHER critters too, so here are some from the archives.

Following on from the compostion basics post, look out for the following composition techniques:

– going low to be intimate with the subject
– focussing on the eyes and getting a catchlight- filling the frame with the subject ie getting up close
– neutral or blurred out backgrounds

Some of these I achieve!


This is Bella, a weimaraner


Daisy a bichon cross


Ruby the Bernese Mountain Dog

    when you say ‘going low’ you are serious! Tired Ruby is a beautiful shot. Can’t wait to start practicing that with my cats.

      Absolutely flat on the ground – how low can you go!

      It really makes so much difference to the feel of the shot, its a great tip for shooting children as well.

      Good luck with your cat shots, look forward to seeing some new angles 🙂
