1/200sec f1.8 50mm ISO800
One of the things I am proud of: my two cats. This is one of them; Oskar, a male Norwegian Forest cat.
I feel I've done a lot of monochrome lately, but it's not really been by choice... The blanket to the left/bottom of the frame is a very vibrant orange and I felt it was too distracting in colour. With the cats, it's a case of getting what I can, when I can, because like with most cats, they choose to only speak Human when it suits them and they rarely take directions!
Next week I'd like to:
*go full colour
use the 50mm
*explore ideas that require much more DOF
*photograph something I don't normally shoot, or
*try a new technique
I feel a lot of the stuff I do is similar... Obviously, because I'm photographing the cats every week anyway for my other Photo52 project, using one of them as the subject for this week's TP theme doesn't help in that respect.
