Does your cat have several favorite places in the house? Luxie does. You can almost always find her in a couple of different locations depending on the time of day. One of her favorite places is on a wool rug in our foyer. It's nice and bright and allows her to look out the window in the door and the two side windows. She can also see into the rest of the house and look up to see the upstairs. It's also were we have set up her little pot of cat grass.
What I like about it is that light is usually pretty good for photographs. It's tricky to photograph cats with white and other colors. When you try and meter for the other colors in their coat, the white tends to blow out. In this case, I manually bring down the whites a bit in lightroom to try and balance it a bit.
The other tricky thing about photographing Luxie is that as soon as you point a camera towards her, she comes running up to you. In this case, I had just come back from a photoshoot, so I had my long lens on my camera, my 70-200. This allowed me to be far enough away from her that she didn't feel like I was calling to her by crouching down on the floor.
For her artsy photo this week, I turned her into a Cézanne painting!
