Photographing my black cat

October 26, 2008 | By Anonymous | 9 comments

It's going to be a challenge to get good photos of my black cat, Lestat. He isn't as easy to get a good shot of as my lighter colored cats! Does anyone have any tips?

I agree, even natural light that may be coming into a room from an outside source, just keep the source at your back and in the face of the cat. I have to turn off my flash or I get big glowing eyes instead of the natural looking ones.

My black cat, Edgar Allan Poe, has a very shiny coat so photographing him has been a lot easier than I initially suspected. Professional groomers often use mink oil on black dog or cat who needs to be photographed to make them shinier & thus more easily photographed. BioGroom makes a mink oil coat spray at a reasonable price if you want to take it that far ;)
