  2. Shoot from a different angle to add interest to your photo;
  3. Capture various features of your cat, not just their face;
  4. Include their personality in your photos;
  5. Capture great action shots by adjusting your shutter speed or using your camera’s Sports or Action mode;

  7. Use natural lighting whenever possible to reduce unwanted shadows and red eye;
  8. Follow the Rule of Thirds to add interest;
  9. Experiment with depth of field to help the viewer focus on the main subject; and,
  10. Add interest to an otherwise dull cat photo by editing to include witty text.
