Week 1 - Day 1 - May 1, 2009 "Louise the Cat"


I'm about to try and experimental. My plan is to take photographs everyday for a year. I'll then post my favorite from that day to this blog.

I hope that you enjoy the process, and if you have any suggestions please add them to the comments.

I have some preconceived notions about what will happen in this process. One of which is, I think I won't like many of the photos. As an example in this first photo, I think that I had the depth of field a little to narrow. While the face of Louise is in focus, her body is not. I do like the fur coming off the right side of her body, as the light filters around them. I do like the background, but it may be a little to busy.

Lessons:
  • I created this photo as a JPEG. I think that I need to shoot RAW for this experiment.
  • The shutter speed was to fast, I needed more light with either a slower shutter speed, or a higher ISO.
  • Cats don't tend to stay in one place very long.

Photo details: Exposure Time 1/320 (should have been 1/250), Aperture f/2.8, ISO 100, Lens Canon 70-200mm f2.8L USM
