A fun and practical guide to taking the perfect pics of your cat from the photographer of Cats on Catnip — a great gift for the feline fanatic in your life.

If you or someone you know loves a cat, chances are they love taking pictures of their cat, too. But cats can be tricky little guys to photograph — they move quickly when you want them to stay still and are sedentary logs when you’re going in for an action shot. Add to that all the variables of shooting indoors vs. outdoors, and it can be a difficult job.
