Thimble Thursday: Glamour Shots

Thimble decided that not enough of her glamour shots have been shared lately. I told her we could remedy that.


How's that? Glamorous, right? Thimble likes to make sure the camera gets her from every angle.


She may or may not take advantage of the fact that she is ridiculously adorable.


Sometimes we do get a bit distracted.


And then there's the funny face or two. Thimble decided to embrace this funny face and entered it into Noodle's Raspberry/Tongue Curling event for the Blogville Pawlympics.

Wishing all of our furiends a happy Thursday!

Our Tip of the Day:
Following up on a recent post in which I noted on certain furbabies' camera aversion...If your cat or dog shows a dislike for the camera, try to find ways to help mollify this for them. We all want to be able to photograph and have lasting memories of our furry cuties, so perhaps you and your kitty or pup can meet in the middle. For example, especially if you know your furbaby is averse to it, do your best to avoid using the camera's flash. Although not always possible, try keeping photography sessions to daytime, when you can use windows and natural lighting. For some cameras, you can also try adjusting certain settings, such white balance and exposure, so that the camera itself can help you improve lighting without having to use the flash. For example, if you're inside in the evening with lamps on, set the white balance to incandescent, and bump up exposure so that the picture comes out brighter. Whether it be a daylit window or evening lamp, try coaxing your furbaby over to the light source, such as with treats or toys. And, most importantly, reward your furbaby with treats and toys, both during and after the photo shoot, so that they can associate the camera with those goodies.

Thimble is very glamorous and I love her raspberry :) Good job getting a photo of that. The only cat I have that does that is Phoebe and whenever I grab the camera, she pulls that tongue right back in. Great tips, my cats hate that flash, but now they blink even when it isn't on-little stinkers.

Ridiculously adorable, for sure! Great photography tips...my living room has *zero* natural light so I follow Mudpie around wherever she is. And my very favorite picture of her was taken without the flash using only the light from my bedside lamp!

Several of us entered photos for Noodle's tongue curling Pawlympics event. I take a lot of photos of sleeping cats so as not to bother them. Thimble does seem quite good about posing. That's like our Mauricio. Hugs, Janet
