STILL LIFE 39 – CUSHION

At the home of a lover of cats, in Thatcham, Berkshire; 1 June 2016.

A day of family duties, over far east of my usual stamping grounds, over far east of where I feel truly at home.

Not wanting to be weighed down by lots of gear, I chose to take only the 24-120 zoom, which is a really handy lens for all sorts of occasions.  I’ve even covered a christening with it.

This shot was taken with the D700.  But using this lens with the far higher pixel D800, which allows a meaningful 1.5x magnification of focal lengths in DX format, this lovely piece of glass can become 24-180, which is even more useful.

About Adrian Lewis
Photographer working in monochrome, colour and combinations of the two - with a great liking for all sorts of images, including Minimalism, landscapes, abstracts, soft colour, people, movement, nature - I like to be adventurous in my photography, trying new ideas and working in many genres. And I'm fond of Full English Breakfasts and Duvel golden ale, though not necessarily together.

    This is excellent. I love it! The cat seems to jump out at me, and somehow, the chair looks very painterly – like one of those paintings which resemble a photograph. Wonderful and fun!

  2. I agree with blubrightly – this image brought a smile to my face…it’s quite freaky in some ways but a great capture 🙂

    Very striking! It really makes one smile, Adrian. And the pale color processing is perfect. I will resist saying purrrfect. Maybe I won’t.
