Cute Cats Photo Contest

Cats. We know that this could be a divisive photo contest subject. There is a well known rift in this country of people who love cats and people who...dislike them for whatever reason. We think they are the perfect balance of cuddly, funny, and aloof...with a little narcissism mixed in there. To celebrate those feline personalities we decided to open up a photo contest specifically for cats. Dog owners, don't worry, you will get your chance soon.

So if you happen to have a cat or two (or even twelve) then this photo contest has your name written all over it. Simply head over to our Cute Cat Photo Contest headquarters on our Facebook page to submit your photos into the contest. You can even enter via Instagram by using the hashtag #cpcutecat. Maybe your cat is the next Chewbacca cat or Grumpy Cat. The point is that your cat could be a star...you just don't know it yet. Capture them doing what they do best...that is usually just them being themselves. Lounging, pouncing, bathing, attacking, ignoring, nesting, climbing in boxes and bags...you know all of the things that cats do. The best photos will win one of 3 top prizes. Let me get to the nitty gritty of the contest here.

Tips-n-Tricks #106

If you are taking portraits or photos of your kids with your DSLR always try to focus on the eyes of your subject. The subjects eyes always need to be sharp in a photo. The rest of the photo can go blurry as long as your subjects eyes are sharp you will have an interesting photograph.
