    My girlfriend's kittah is sick and is going to be put to sleep this week. She wanted me to come by and take some pictures of it.

    Just had a few concerns that if we do it inside, the flash is going to make its eyes look really creepy.

    If I just bounce a flash off the ceiling is it still going to make his eyes look funny?

    I'd like to do some inside and some outside, the outside ones will be easy, but I'm just curious about the best way to get inside pics of him with his eyes well lit, but natural color.

    The cat is all black if that helps.

    bounce flash will work fine. bring a pen light with you to help w/ focus. black cats suck when it comes to focusing.

    Black is a bitch to shoot. They just absorb light and most have a shinny coat that reflects highlights like crazy.

    those look really good. did you use a flash on the outdoor shots or is that just natural light?

    Okay, I'll play around and see what happens. How did you keep the flash from making the eyes look funny?
