I have recently been asked to photograph the wedding of an old friend. Needless to say I am both very excited and nervous! Of course I am excited to be a part of their big day; it is a long time coming for these two love birds. I am also nervous because it is such a big day and I haven't used my DSLR for a few months.
Today with all of the waiting for random strangers from craigslist to come by my home and pick up the various items I am selling before the move, I figured it is high time to bust that bad boy out and have some fun taking some photos of my furry children.
First up for their shoot was Jixer. He definitely lives up to his name...compact and very speedy!!! Confused? Search for Suzuki GSX-R and it will make a lot more sense :)
I just cannot get over the markings on this little guy!
The next lucky model....Catzo! He is my big orange love bug. I was in love with him from the moment I laid eyes on him. True story!!! Just ask my sister and she will describe to you the face I made when I saw him in the cage inside the Petsmart. She said "After that look on your face, I just had to help you get him". She paid half of the adoption fee for Catzo as my Christmas present in 2010.
The reason I loved him so much from the beginning is because I always wanted a fat cat, and he definitely fit the bill!
This is what I woke up to the morning after I adopted him! He no longer looks like this because being that heavy wasn't good for his health, so he went on a diet and looks great.
This is Catzo today! Is it just me or did this suddenly turn in to a successful weight loss story?
Still in love!
Last up for their 15 minutes of
shame fame is the biggest ball of fluff, Oswald. He was my birthday present from Christopher and myself last year. He has the loudest purr I have ever heard, and is the best cuddler. He literally wraps his front paws around my arm and holds it, and if I try to move it he hangs on even tighter (it is actually quite difficult to get out of his grip).
Seriously, this kitty is just one big ball of fur!
We all had a great time today with the photo shoot...especially me!! It has been a long time since I have been able to adjust all of the settings as I please and using manual focus (for the kitties). I think it makes those end products that much more special! That being said, I definitely like the point and shoot for every day photos.
