I fell in love with photography all over again when I began pet blogging, just after I adopted my beautiful tabby girl Athena five years ago.
I cringe at some of the earlier photos I took of her because most were on my old Blackberry phone and quite blurry. I decided that if I wanted to be taken seriously as a blogger, I had to take my blog content more seriously too. So then I began reading up on photography and was quickly amazed at how much information is out there if you look for it.
My really old digital camera had to go and so I purchased a Canon point and shoot at first, which is really quite good and will do just fine for blog photos. It is my current back up camera.
But in October 2013 I decided to treat myself to something a little more expensive because I was really loving my new hobby and was keen to work hard at becoming a better photographer. I chose a Canon 600D and this is the camera I am now using the most for my blog and cat photography.
So here is a flashback to some of the first shots I took of Athena with that camera. It was 3 years ago and I know my photos have improved a lot since then. Athena is the purrfect model!
