These little critters are so photogenic. It’s been a joy taking pictures of them over the last few days.

Ps. I just ordered a new lens. I told myself that I would add a new piece of glass to my collection every year. It’s been kind of crazy over the last two months, so I haven’t had a chance to invest into some glass. I’ll do a post on it soon. Stay tuned for more cat photos.

Here are some black and white photos of Noodle and Ellie. Everything was shot using my 35mm. Unfortunately half of the photos were out of focus—I was having some sort of back-focusing issue with my camera. I think I fixed the problem though. I was able to make some adjustments in the settings on my D600, so hopefully that resolves it.

I probably should have shot this at F2.2—the depth of field was a little too shallow, and the focus was off by about an inch.
Oh by the way, I’m back on the east coast now. I’m hoping that I can get my teeth fixed while I’m here. One of our family friends is a dentist, and he said that he should be able to take a look at everything tomorrow. In the mean time, I’ll be working remotely and hanging out with the cats during the week.

So for starters, Ellie is super cute. She’s such a sweet cat—she’ll come up to me an say hello every day.
Now lets talk about the photo. There’s nothing special about the picture itself except that it was shot with the iPhone 7 Plus with no color correction or retouching. This is just an average photo, shot with average lighting.
I’m kind of amazed by the level of quality by these new smart phones. I’ll do photo shootout later this week. I’m really curious to see how it performs compared to my full frame DSLR.

By the way, the video shot from the iPhone 7 Plus is pretty amazing too. I’m hoping to experiment with this a little more too.
