Black cats

I’ve been a bit under the weather this weekend and spent some time browsing the BBC news app on my phone and came across this story about people not wanting black cats because they’re not so photogenic. What tosh! Now I admit it can be a challenge to get a perfect picture of my black cat, Midnight, especially when he’s all curled up and got his eyes closed. Often the photo can come out too black and flat, without showing enough detail to make a decent picture. This is especially true when snapping a quick pic with my phone’s camera. But often he comes and settles on me and my main camera is out of reach. Or if I can get at it, he perks up and moves about too much, or worse still tries to play with it and fight the strap or lens cap. However I don’t give up and keep trying to capture his handsomeness. I’ve not got it tight yet, but that means I just have to keep trying. In the meantime, here are some of my attempts…


I've been a keen photographer for many years now. I work hard to get good shots and build a collection of photos that help make a special set of memories. Whether you're having a party, a wedding, or any other kind of event I will focus on your needs.
