Some of you wonder what my tricks are when I photograph animals. Honestly, I don't have that many. Number one is simply to shoot until the animals get bored. That's when they stop wobbling around and just stare. Be patient and be friendly with the creatures, if you handle them fiercely and annoyed they're only going to get more stressed.
When it comes to cats, it not as easy. I find yoghurt to be the solution most times. When I photograph Lollo I always have a small plate with yoghurt. I put this in the place I want him to be and let him taste a little of it. Then I take the plate away and hold it in the direction I want Lollo to look. When his concentration breaks I give him the plate again and then repeat the procedure. Sometimes a string works just as good, but then the cat has to be in a playful mood.
