This project was so much fun and such a struggle at the same time!
All those who ever tried to take a photo of a cat, know that the real challenge here is simply the fact that you're dealing with a cat :)
Cats don't care. One moment they're in the most photogenic pose you can ever imagine, but by the time you pull out a camera, they're carelessly walking away and the moment is gone.
You can't tell them to sit in a particular place and stay still until you find a good angle and create some kind of lighting, compose, crop (because it's minimal) and press the shutter button. Also you can't ask them to be patient until you try 20 more times, because most photos will just not turn out the way you want them to be.
This is how I ended up crouching by the couch for like 30 minutes with a reading lamp in my left hand, constantly looking for a decent angle for lighting, phone in my right hand following the cat's head and trying to compose a shot, while psst-psst-ing the entire time and gently poking her to turn the way I need her to be... As I said, a lot of fun :)
When this photo finally happened, I jumped up and screamed of joy and ran to my wife to share the picture with her. We both loved it!
Once again, thanks for the comments and looking forward to the next fun challenge!
