Here is a photograph from my Yahoo Group "Cat-Photo-Technique" by Higashitori. This is the technique he used - these are the photographer's words
"NIKON AF Nikkor 50mm f/1.8 D
Camera: Nikon D40 Exposure:0.017 sec (1/60) Aperture: f/3.5 Focal Length: 50 mm ISO Speed: 400"
"The thing I love the most about photographing cats is that you can have lots of great ideas on taking a picture, but that it will often turn out to be completely different which makes the photographing a lot more exciting and valuable"
