We who have black kitties all know it's difficult to get a great pic of their beauties,I think this pic of Chico,shows why:laughing:

lol yeah backlighting black cats are usally not a good idea though it would make an interesting cameo

i figured out a while back black animal equals 1 or 2 more f stops
and a lot of diffused light

and why the devil do cats like keyboards ? i mean its not like thier momma used one .

Boy, are you ever telling the truth! They really are difficult to get pictures of unless there's plenty of light. But I've gotten some nice silhouettes like this one though.:D

Too funny - especially because I can relate to getting pictures of black cats since Shadow is black too! Great picture :thumbs up

It's actually a very cool pic. But I feel your pain seeing as I have two black dogs - seems my dogs have no faces in pics most of the time.

I do have some good pics of Chico,but mostly outdoor pics,with day-light.
He is not on the keyboard,it's under the desk,but he's close enough to me so he can get lots of cuddles:cat:

He looks the best with green grass as a background,like this..

:laughing:Atleast we can see some of Chico's head outline.

He does look better with a green back ground.

He's such a cutie.:lovestruck:

:laughing: i have hundreds of those shots :rolleyes:

July 10th, 2008, 07:18 PM
LOL, Chico! That's hilarious! :laughing:

July 10th, 2008, 08:42 PM
It's a great shot! The background all black and the kitty silhouette really stands out. Good to see he's not viewing kitty porn!:cool:

What's Chico's username? I'm curious to see what he was posting :laughing: .

Great shot!!

LP,Chico is complaining wondering what people have against black kitties(not the Forum-members),he thinks he is beautiful,sleek and shiny and very sweet and so do I.
Now,if that white thingy,with the evil eyes(Vinnie)would disappear,life would be perfect,that's what Chico says:laughing:
