A Study in Feline Beauty

Pictures

Cats are difficult to photograph. At least, for me they are. My two are often so cute/playful/beautiful/cunning/charming that I plead with them to hold the pose long enough for me to grab my phone. They almost never do.

But this morning, for whatever reason, Shadow decided to cooperate, and here’s the result…. Well, here’s the result after I chose the best of three shots, cropped it, and played with the color.

I don’t mean to imply that I’m a Photoshop pro. I’m far from that. I know how to adjust the exposure of a picture, but after that it’s pure guess work. So it took lots of trial and error to get the picture I wanted. Finally, I noticed a setting called shadow. It couldn’t be that easy, could it? Would playing with shadow be what I needed for my portrait of Shadow?

Yes, I think it was. Isn’t she a beauty?
