I got some adorable pictures of my beautiful cat, Belle, the other day. She was waking up from a nap in the sun so lounging around a lot!
I set my ISO really low and made my shutter speed really fast so the direct sunlight wasn't detrimental to my photographs, but I think I'd like to invest in something to diffuse the light as it definitely is a bit harsh. Also your editing tips for the 'spot healing' tool were super helpful, as Belle is prone to eye crusties and these close ups look better without them!
I got some outdoor shots of my other cat, Lotte, today as well. I'm currently editing them, but will be posting those soon!
