I have seen many cat photos, both professional and amateur. Here is a list of the most common mistakes that even the professionals make sometimes:
- Avoid direct flash. Some of you will say "but I don't have enough money for external flash or professional lightning!". In fact you can solve the problem just by placing a flash diffuser on your internal flash, and costs around 15$. You'll get significantly better pictures that way. Of course the diffuser will not replace the professional lightning, but itâ€™s a good step forward.
- Don't put your object (the cat) in the center of the frame. Get familiar with the Golden Section rule. It has been found that certain points in a picture's composition automatically attract the viewer's attention. There are many good articles that you can found about the Golden Section rule in the Internet.
- Always focus on the eyes of the cat, unless the idea of pictures is other. The eyes of the cats are the most beautiful treat in them, so make sure everyone will see their beauty. If you have images that are not with focus on the right spot, delete them with no regret. No one likes blurred images.
- Avoid too many objects in the background (or multicolor background). This will only take away the attention from your main object â€“ the cat. For example you can use blanket as a background. Also try to blur the background to attract more attention to the main object.
- Delete the photos that you don't like at 100%. If you wonder is it good or not, better delete it. If you made very cute cat picture, but out of focus - delete is. Be perfectionist. This is the only way to get better.
