Very nicely captured! Cutest kitty! #8489807

Thanks! And the "capture" wasn't actually that difficult. :-) I do the photography for Angels of Assisi Animal Shelter in Roanoke, Virginia, and I have developed an innovation that allows me to photograph any kitten with ease. Most of my kitten photos are similar to this little guy, meaning that they sit still and pose perfectly. I'm actually writing a book that will outline my tips, tricks and techniques for taking photos like this in the very non-studio and hectic setting of an animal shelter. I managed this little guy's photo in less than 5 minutes! #8489846

Congrats on this cutie! I hope he found a good home as all the others you photograph at the shelter. #8544610
