How to Take Cat Photos
Taking good cat photos requires some patience and practice. Having a good camera helps, but it's only part of the story. Eliminate the trial and error by following published cat photographer Troy Snow's tutorial.
Give us a kiss!
Veterinarian Dr. Marty Becker has written a book called The Ultimate Cat Lover which includes some of Troy's work.
As part of a promotional effort by the publishers of the book, I was fortunate enough to be allowed to publish Troy Snow's tips on taking pet photographs on my site.
Troy's article, published in its entirety below, describes how best to take shots of Fluffy and Fido.
I was also given permission to use some of his cat photos, some of which are displayed on this page.
In addition, I've also taken the liberty of listing a couple of related cat lover gifts that you might find to be good suggestions. These are two very popular items on Amazon.com. If you're stuck for a gift (or you secretly want to buy something for yourself) these just might fit the bill.
The first is a key chain. More specifically, it's a digital photo key chain by Coby.
It can store over 60 photos (of your favorite cats of course) in multiple file formats. Maybe you could have some pictures of your family in there too, if there's room.
It's got a 1.5 inch full-color LCD display, a USB port, and a built-in rechargeable lithium-ion battery.
So, you can carry your pictures with you wherever you go. Pretty cool.

The second gift idea is a digital camera so that you can take those great cat photos and put them on your photo key chain (after you read the article below, you'll be a pet photography pro, so you're gonna need a new camera).
If you're buying these as gifts, go ahead and send the lucky recipient to this page so they can learn how to take great pictures of their cats too.
Its the Canon PowerShot A590IS 8MP digital camera. This also is one of the most popular items at Amazon.com.
It's got 4x optical zoom and at 8MP, it takes great shots. Below is the article on how best to use your camera for pet shots.
