More Suffolk On-Location Pet Photography! Tigger was a little shy actually, which was quite understandable considering the large black object that relentlessly followed her around the garden clicking to itself on Sunday afternoon. Still we managed to get some nice ambient and off-camera flash-lit pictures.

Fudge the Staffy

Fudge (the Staffordshire Bull Terrier) is possibly the most affectionate dog I've met. I don't usually photograph animals, but Fudge has already been subjected to my snapping away at her before, and seems to have survived. In fact she makes a really excellent subject, so I was very happy to be able to shoot a few more frames of her on Saturday. She seemed to enjoy the experience. Thanks to Howard and Mandy for letting me photograph her!

Taffy the Cat


Taffy the Cat, by DaveBulow

Today's photo blog post is a personal one, really. I couldn't resist sharing this feline portrait of our second cat, Taffy.

For those who may be interested in the technical info:
Camera: Canon EOS 5D with Olympus OM Zuiko 50mm f/3.5 Manual focus Macro lens (with OM-EOS bayonet adaptor)
Exposure: f/22, 1/200th sec, ISO 200.
Lit by: An off camera Canon EX580II flash, ETTL mode, reflected & diffused off bathroom door, triggered by a Canon ST-E2 infra-red transmitter. Using natural/available light for this kind of shot would have been nearly impossible. At such a close focus range, even f/22 is still shallow, and I wanted to shoot at ISO200. Cats don't often deliberately seek out soft, directional light of that degree of intensity, especially not on request, so I had to use flash, really.
