I was encouraged by Ark at https://attaleuntold.wordpress.com/ to rely less on memes and off the web peictures and to write more of my own thoughts on my blog. I have tried. I also found his photographs both intriguing and terrifying at times. So I walked out to the living room from my office and noticed Odis lying in one of the cat condos we have, they love them near windows. He was in such a grand repose I had to try. I also got a couple shots of Milo on the coffee table to see how they would be different. I have a canon Powershot A590 that I love. I have never tried the different settings, always keeping it in auto and easy. However I am determined to learn, so today I took a bunch of photos, both with the flash and without. I found out some shots are impossible with the window light behind the subject, something I did not know before and frustrated the heck out of me. Here are my shots. I would love to get better, get more interesting, and I can only do that if people give me their HONEST opinion and view of the pictures I take. Suggestions are very welcome. While I may like the photo and love the subject, it is how the viewer sees it and reacts that is important. Thanks and hugs.
