FrostyNovember 15, 2005

Location:     Baltimore, MD
Camera:     Canon PowerShot Pro1
EXIF:     1/2 sec, F/3.5, 17 mm, Super Macro feature
Notes:     This cat belongs to Chiaroscuro and Visual Field, and is truly one of the most beautiful cats I've seen. What I especially loved about taking his photo is that even as I tried to get his attention, hoping that if he was looking at me that he would then hold his gaze straight for half a second (the exposure time), he refused to look at me and instead looked straight into the camera lens for the full 1/2 second.

Chiaroscuro tells me that he's very used to cameras and that whenever Visual Field comes near him with a handheld flash, he closes his eyes in anticipation.

Frosty may be beautiful, but you make him look stunning. I think fully appreciating this photo (and half second exposure) may only be possible after one has tried to photograph non-sleeping cats for oneself.

Yes, it's a great shot and beautiful cat. My cat would never sit still like that for a photo with that long of an exposure. Sigh.

Captivating photograph. I've tried cat-photography myself, so I *really* appreciate this closeup.
