Getting Sprocket in the same frame as another Miao is difficult because his boisterousness tends to send everyone running for shelter. Even if I can settle him close to another Miao, I still can’t get a good photo because he won’t sit exactly where I need, and if I put him close enough, the other Miao, Ping in this case, will leave in search of a calmer nap spot. Also, with my nikon, I have depth of field issues that are tied up with lighting issues. Basically, I need the two Miaos the same distance from the camera. All of it conspires to make group portraits extraordinarily difficult, so difficult in fact that I don’t have any yet. Here are my latest attempts from Ping’s photo session.
Practice makes purrfect, but even Ping’s patience has its limits. If I put Sprocket by him every time he settles on my bed for a nap, he will start shunning my room.
