Pictures of Kittens
Pictures of kittens are one of those things that are hard to resist. The cute factor is just too high not to take a picture. Keeping
after the picture taking is a great way to see the actual growth of the kitten but it is often difficult as busy schedules and the
thought to take the picture escapes the owner. Kittens turn into cats fairly quickly so those first few weeks are the time to keep a
camera handy. With this in mind there are a few tips to consider when you take some of your first snaps.
Pictures of kittens are such that a frame of reference needs to be provided if the photographer is taking pictures from birth. Make
sure that some common item is in the frame for the first few weeks so those that are looking at the pictures have an idea of how big
the kitten really is. Obviously, as the kittens start to walk or waddle around a frame of reference can easily be in the picture but
if a reasonable item is not around try placing one nearby.
What is that?
As with human children the sense of wonder makes for a fantastic photograph. Pictures of kittens as they begin to check out their new
world are almost as interesting as a toddler trying to reason in his own mind. The photographer is sure to see the kittens mind working
on "what the heck is this?" Thankfully, this thought shows up remarkably well in a picture. To catch the thought happening is what makes
a good picture.
A child's first kitten
Another idea for a picture is a child's first interaction with a young kitten. This may be the first time a child has held another living
thing in their hands; let alone something that is alive, younger and smaller than they are. The look of a cat looking up at the photographer
or owner is cute. The look of a child holding a kitten for the first time is a kitten picture not to be missed. Pictures of kittens come in
many forms so just taking the picture of the kitten alone is a missed opportunity.
Just as a child's first encounter with a kitten is a good picture waiting to happen so is a kitten's first encounter with the outdoors. The
"what is that?" factor found inside has just been multiplied by 1,000. Given the size of a kitten, the grass makes for an interesting first
encounter. A tilted head and a tentative swipe at the grass is likely the first reaction but their first steps on the grass make for an even
more "ah?" of a picture. Pictures of kittens outdoors are nice because they happen to be a bit slower than when a kitten turns into a cat. When
they first venture outside it is also a first step sort of moment. Capturing at least one solid picture is just one of those things.
Be careful what you wish for
In many respects, a kitten is an accelerated child. There are many pictures of the first few kittens that an owner may have but fewer and fewer
of succeeding kittens. Before the owner knows it the kitten is all grown up and causing all sorts of mischief. Pictures of kittens are a way to
look back and saying "I remember when" after that expensive vase gets knocked off the mantel. If the kitten pictures are not there the opportunity
to remember days gone by is lost and all that is left is a hiding cat and a broken vase. Pictures of kittens are the easiest cat pictures to take
so take them for when you need them.
