Here is my portrait of Zorah, my lynx point siamese cat. See how I got down at her level, and the photo becomes so much more striking than if it was taken from above. Her blue eyes pierce my camera lens with intensity.
F-Stop - f/2.8
Shutter - 1/100
ISO - 400
I luckily had a giant window behind me to take this photo, which is why I was able to take it without having to crank my ISO up or drop my shutter too much.
