EYE ON YOU
“Eyes are the windows to one's soul.” This old adage couldn't be more true in Puss' case. Draw focus to your feline's twinkling emerald peepers to showcase their intricate structure and offer a glimpse into her deepest thoughts. Avoid using flash, or risk a nasty glint.

 

TALL TAIL
If Fido or Puss has a glorious behind, turn it into the highlight of your photography masterpiece. Give your furkid's tail a good brush before pressing the shutter to bring out the unique nuances and textures.

 

WINNING WHISKERS
Often overlooked, whisker pads and the long, flexible hairs that emerge from them are important to Puss' daily life. Best shot when your cat is sniffing something out, these seemingly inconsequential strands of hair are very characteristic of kitties and make for an interesting detail in pictures.
