The Daily Shoot 133

To take my mind off my other news for today, let’s quickly write up my photo for the next Daily Shoot assignment, the one for Sunday 28 March (#ds133). The task? “Sunday Challenge: Backlighting in a scene can create drama. Make a photo with interesting placement of backlit subjects.”

The sun had been streaming in through the south-facing windows in our house all day and since our cats love basking in the sunlight, it seemed a good idea to try for a backlit cat image. Except... the little buggers were more interested in sleeping than posing with their back to the sun. Eventually though, I managed to snap Aristaeus, and decided to go for a tight crop to cut out all the extraneous noise of the floor, the window blinds, etc, behind him.

Deep thought

Definitely a “what the hell do you think you’re doing?” look. Or perhaps, “You think you’re so clever snapping your fingers, don’t you?”

Hi Julian. Great shot. I love tight crops and the composition is superb. A real winner. Stu
