It is quite hard to shoot with cats. you need be patient.

Portraits

To shoot a portait with a cat and a human is the most difficult for me. It is quite hard to bring them into a position that looks good on a picture. First I decide which object, human or cat, I want to be in the center of the picture. In this case it is the cat which is focused.

The most importan part is the lighting. In this picture I have used two softboxes to lighten up the objects. You need to play a little with the light to see where you want some shadows and where not.

Bokeh

Getting bokeh effect is not really difficult. I go on 70mm 2.8 to blur out the background. To get the blurry line in the foreground, I place a white blanket in front of Odin.

A large aperture results in a large amount of background blur. I decided to only sharpen the part where Odin´s head is.
