Main Coon Kitten (3 months)!

My grandpa has just purchased a beautifull main coon kitten, she is only 3 months old! I love taking photos of her but sadly my 55mm f/5.6 does not cut it. I was able to take her out into the a nicely lit room yesterday and we had some fun. These are my first indoor animal pictures i have taken with the rebel, please tell me what you think.

you are absolutely INSANE!!!

those are some of the best looking photographs i've seen(besides mine of course:o ). It's real hard to photographs cats but these shots are very good quality.

Thank you all very much for the comments, I love photographing her. I am going to be buying a 70-200mm lens on monday or tuesday and i will be able to post better (hopefully) pictures than. I have a couple of my not so good shots of her i can show you when photobucket is back up.

Thanks again,

Alex

You going to go pro?

well thank you very much, but i still have a lot of work to do. mainly finishing highschool, or grade 9. lol. i dont think i'd want to be pro when i grow up. ill just have a normal job like my dad or something and take pictures for fun.

Yes they are as good as the others. You really have a gift!!

jiorji

yeah you're right...they're not that good if you're talking "pro quality" But even the pros...they shoot 5+ rolls of film and then only end up with 4-5 good shots. So you're doing well. :thumbs up


my favorite picture is the one of her playing with the red fluff ball. hehe

but I can't help but notice the long list of pets under your name there....and their pictures are where??? I expect to see those soon :cool: :evil:

I've put #4 as my screen saver, that's how cute she is. Those paws are to die for.

Awwww she's so cute! How do you keep her so still? I got pics of my Leo (with a webcam so they'll be cruddy quality but meh) but I had to all but hold him in place!

She seems so cuddly!

That young huh? Your talent is right up there with some of the best pros. Whatever age you are, if you were here in Alberta I would hire you to do shots of Melei.

Well its very hard, she is always moving about. It took me about an hour just to get those shots (as well as many not very good ones). Luckily at the end she settled down on the steps a bit so i got some nice shots.
