Weekend Cat Blogging and Photo Hunt: Shadow (with Hipstamatic)

For today’s combined Weekend Cat Blogging and Photo Hunt, we follow Luna in her favorite morning spot, the dining table. The bright sun from the southeast brings warmth to the surfaces and also casts strong shadows.

I am experimenting again with the Hipstamatic app for the iPhone, which simulates old lenses, film processes, etc. This particular lens was relatively clear but makes everything high contrast (a common theme in my photography). I also tried out another lens that has a rather streaky and overexposed quality:

The oversaturated image brings out contrast between the shadows and the sun patches. ┬áIt also has an interesting effect on Luna’s black fur.


Weekend Cat Blogging #293 is hosted by Samantha, Clementine and (honorary cat) Maverick at Life from a Cat’s Perspective.

Photo Hunt #248 is hosted by tnchick. This week’s theme is Shadow.

The Carnival of the Cats will be up tomorrow at iMeowza.

    This is a very interesting pair of shots. I really like the second one the best, it has a very “old fashioned” quality to it. And the shadows are more prominent too, as you pointed out in your post.

    Hi Luna. You really do like posing. You’re a wonderful model.
    These 2 pics makes your fur a little bit purpley :)

    No matter what the lens,Luna is lovely!!!!
    The “older” lens makes me glad for the new ones ;)
    I tend to prefer the dark panther quality of her black furs.

    Cat, your shots are simply amazing… when you say you used a ‘different’ lens what did you use? Luna is a great model but I am impressed by your ability to get 3d effects in your Photos. You can see some of my feeble creations on Rebel T2i review
