Yes it's that time of year when I bravely get my camera, some props and a cat or two in the same space and attempt to take a photo for a Christmas card. For various reasons this year it was left to my two lady cats to do the honours. I got the lights ready (alright, I tried to get the lights ready, swore at them, yelled for David, he tried it, I swore at him, he flounced out, and then we were ready...).
The hi-tech set consisted of two pieces of white card, a furry rug, some gold tinsel, and a few baubles.
Pepper helped me arrange the set,
then ate the cat treats I'd hidden under
the tinsel and ran away.
Mrs P was more amiable,
but even she couldn't resist pulling a scary face...
She did agree to pose
nicely after being told she wouldn't
be in CoT if she didn't...
This is the set-up we used.
Note how hard it is to
get a cat to stay awake
to do some work...
Did I manage to get a usable image in the end? Yes, 148 shots later. However you'll have to wait until the festive season to see it :O))
And so that fans of Charlie won't feel too bereft, here he is sitting with some pumpkins on Halloween, which is much more his style really.
