Y’know, I try really hard to make sure there are plenty of good pictures of the girls or other cats for Caturday. I take tons of shots, try different settings and approaches, and I wait patiently, camera ready, for them to just look at the camera instead turning their heads completely the other way. I just wish the girls would put in a bit more effort.
Sometimes, I am lucky enough to have the camera when a good yawn is in the works and I start shooting. It’s then that I realize I hadn’t turned on the continuous shooting setting. Of course, turning on this setting will guarantee that Zelda will not yawn again anytime soon.
Other times, the camera is all ready and the cat is standing dead still like a statue, almost like she’s posing. That is, she is dead still until 0.045 seconds before the shutter releases. That’s when Mrs.Parker decides it’s time to sniff the camera.
When I’m trying to get both in one shot, it’s even harder. Sometimes one is looking but the other isn’t.
Other times, one is ready and the other photo bombs.
Every once in a while, they cooperate and I get it right.
Caturday sure is a lot of work for the humans.
