Torrey Close Ups

Trying to get close up pics of Torrey can be challenging as he doesn't like cameras! Usually pictures are from afar and then cropped and zoomed to get closer!





But on this day, Torrey was more interested in playing with his mouse than avoiding the camera! So, I got a few pics - awful background (my boxes of teaching resources which I store in the dining room!), but at least I got some Torrey pics without having to do the hold zoom and crop!




I still haven't mastered light and so you can't see any of his contrast or glitter. If you get up really close, he has rosettes and what looks black is actually three colours - black lined with shimmery brown and then light brown. I'll try to get some close ups so everyone can see it more clearly.

Torrey is a beautiful cat. We really like the swirls. We like to move when mom is taking pictures so she has many many blurry pictures!

I bet it's the flash that your cats don't like.
Try getting them closer to daylight and catch them on a fast shutterspeed, to avoid using the flash.

They're so handsome!

Torrey, your markings are amazing! I am so jealous that you are so unique looking. I am all one color, very boring.

I love Torrey's shiny fur and incredible pattern. I kept on thinking of a marble cake every time I look at Torrey. Beautiful bengal cats you have there, Torrey and Starbuck. :-)
