Smudge photos

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
Pami kindly offered to let me put Smudge in the cats of TCS video since she's grown up on here, and just in case we do keep her! And frankly, I don't know if she would be alive without the advice of TCS, particularly StarryEyedTiger's kitten glop recipe!

So anyway, I tried to get a good photo of her, but black kittens are so hard to take photos of!!! If her eyes are closed she's just one black blob - and that's when she sits still!!! She's usually running around, and if she sees me near her trying to get a photo she has to run up to me which causes blurry photos...

Anyway, so I thought I'd give her dinner, then photograph her afterwards while she was digesting and relatively quiet.

But then, all she did was clean herself! These were all taken in a row!















So while they're cute, I reckon maybe only one of the last two would be suitable for the video. Whaddya reckon?

Apart from the evil lime green eyes, the last one would be good... Where's the green eye reduction button in cameras????

So she cooperated like any other cat?

My other girls love posing!!!! Maybe I'll just take some more when she's sleeping...

Shes getting so big! How cute she is too. She reminds me of Gheera when he was little. I think the last one would be best for the video.

She is such a little doll!

As the photographer/slave of a black cat, I so understand your problem with getting good pics. The best advice is to try to use natural and ambient light as much as possible or you'll get the evil eyes every time. And we all know that baby Smudge is definitely not evil!

That just makes me smile so much! She's such a special little girl _ I'd just love to be able to snuggle her and kiss her right between the ears.

You've already had one kitty shipped halfway across the country to you, what's another one?

I tell you what, I'll just send her to you to borrow for a week, then you can send her back if you want to. I'm sure Eileen will give me your address

so true, so true. then we also have cats like my Chip, who shuts his eyes just in time so that i don't see them at all if i use a flash. just a black blob. the only time i get eyes at all is if i don't use a flash, or he's several feet away - & with the latter i get the glowing star wars eyes!
