My Grainy Cat

Whilst I was driving home today, I had the urge to try my 70-300mm on my e-pl1

As its too dark outside and noone in the family will let me take a photo of them, its down to the cat to pose for me again

These are hand held, using the B&W Grain Filter and Firing my FL-36r remotely.

The AF would not focus properly at all indoors with low lighting so had to manual focus

Would like to try this again with better light and see how it compares to my e-30

Thanks for looking

I know how difficult it is to persuade a cat to stay still! Well done, they're great.

Cheers Cinders, I caught him in grooming mode this time, which gave me time to focus and snapped away when he looked at me

I love the smouldering moody look on the first one. Great captures.

Re: My Grainy Cat

Dear Steve,

Being a feline lover myself, I really am very impressed with these images. Beautifully composed and they convey so much warmth and character of your beautiful cat.

Congratulations

Chris

Re: My Grainy Cat

Ah thanks very much Chris, find below another one i took at the same time, that shows his very warm side "thats enough photos thank you"

But what I was impressed with was how well the 70-300mm handles on the pen, I had to use manual focus becuase of the low light, but I was still able to focus on the parts I wanted (eye, nose etc) quite easily.

Cant wait for the weather to get better and I'll have a try in better light

anyway here he is again

Re: My Grainy Cat

Dear Steve,

What a delightful surprise to see another image of the boss. You really do have an eye for a really good crop. I always maintain that the 70-300m is the best "bang for buck" lens in the digital zuiko range.

Cheers

Chris
