Taffy the Cat

Taffy the Cat, by DaveBulow

Today's photo blog post is a personal one, really. I couldn't resist sharing this feline portrait of our second cat, Taffy.

For those who may be interested in the technical info:
Camera: Canon EOS 5D with Olympus OM Zuiko 50mm f/3.5 Manual focus Macro lens (with OM-EOS bayonet adaptor)
Exposure: f/22, 1/200th sec, ISO 200.
Lit by: An off camera Canon EX580II flash, ETTL mode, reflected & diffused off bathroom door, triggered by a Canon ST-E2 infra-red transmitter. Using natural/available light for this kind of shot would have been nearly impossible. At such a close focus range, even f/22 is still shallow, and I wanted to shoot at ISO200. Cats don't often deliberately seek out soft, directional light of that degree of intensity, especially not on request, so I had to use flash, really.
