Some tips for getting better photos of street cats:

  • Good light is important! Photograph the street cats at the early morning or the late afternoon if it is possible
  • Try to catch light in the cat's eyes. Your photo will look much better
  • Take a lot of photos - catch every movement and emotion of the cat.
  • lying kitten

  • Look for one colored background. Green blurred grass (or leaf) background is always good. Or use fallen autumn leafs as a background.
  • Try to get closer to the cat with food. The street cats will love you if you give them a little food.
  • Try to photograph some action. Cats playing or cats fighting always looks good and unusual.
  • Be at the same level as the cat's eyes unless you have something else in mind.
  • Watch photos of street cats of other good photographers. See what makes the photo good. Think about how to make the photo better.
  • Watch wildlife photos. Wildlife and street cat photography are not so different.
  • Use telephoto lens for not disturbing the cat. You will take more natural photos.
  • Be patient! The street cats need little time to habituate with you and your camera. In the beginning most of them will be scared. After 15-20 min photographing they will learn that you are not going to hurt them.
  • Practice! As many pictures you do, as better you become.

Cats are curious!! I have a cat, and she is inetseretd in whatever I do; if I open a drawer or a cupboard, she hurries over to see if anything she might like is there. In fact, she has learned to open closet doors by herself. She also likes to scratch on paper, especially newspaper, and she has a photo album which I made with her own pictures in it that also intrigues her. She wants to share my food when I eat. She's the only cat I've ever had, but I think that it is the nature of cats to want to investigate things that appear novel. Cats are also prone to licking, so there might have been a texture or flavor to your photos which appealed to her. My cat is always fascinating to me; I'm still amazed by how much I love her Was this answer helpful?
