Real Cat Photography
Because of the care taken to produce the photograph and the lighting, it is an outstanding photograph.
It is the lighting that really achieves this. Ninety-nine percent and more of amateur photographs of any subject and especially of cats are taken in natural light.
It is just too fiddly and difficult to use strobe lights even if you know how to use them and most don't when photographing a cat, which moves quickly.
I really like the shadows that form great shapes in the background while the subject matter is in motion. It is dynamic and composed.
Great stuff. I might upload it to the home page of Pictures of Cats org because the colours match that site as well as it being a bloody good picture. See more real cat photography: Cat-Photo-Technique
