This is Miss Kitty allowing me to push a macro lens very close to her face for this closeup portrait.
Miss Kitty was saved from the worst fate imaginable when we adopted her. She has been a deeply loved, full fledged member of our family ever since.
This macro photo was captured with a Canon EOS 10D using a Canon EF 50mm f/2.5 Compact-Macro prime lens. The shutter speed was 0.3 sec at f/2.5. The camera’s ISO was set to 200. A Manfrotto tripod was used with a remote shutter release. Two small studio lamps were used with no flash.
Your comments are always welcome! Constructive criticism is appreciated.
