Koukla in Black and White

When I first got into photography I started with a really cheap SLR system that I bought off of www.onsale.com. It was a vivitar v3000s with a 50/1.8 lens. THe lens was pretty decent. The camera had some issues but the exposure meter wasn't too bad. I did a lot with it and I really learned a lot. When I started I wanted to learn everything so I got a completely manual camera. Great camera took some great pictures with it but there was a light leak in it. It got me started though and this is one of my pictures from way back when (um 3-4 years ago) using that camera. This is my cat Koukla.

The subject is my cat koukla. Lit by a table lamp on her left and

maybe some flash I don't remember it was a while ago. I just loved

the way she was staring at me with her head tilted. I was using a

50/1.8 lens wide open.

 

My favorite aspect of this is her position in the frame and the

shallow dof while keeping the eyes in focus. I'm interested to hear

what others think.

This cat has such a great look in its eyes! Like it was said for some reason. I also have cats and I notice somtimes this look. I like this picture very much.

Actually I've been asked that 2 or 3 times before. I guess it's an older show. I've never heard of it but I did look into it and that guy was Kookla, not Koukla.

 

Koukla means doll in Greek. It's also used as an affectionate term for a woman or girl... Or as a basis for sexual harrasment in some cases ;)

I like the way the cat is gazing right back at the viewer. The slight tilt gives it just the right touch, the slighly puzzled but mostly intrigued look. I love the depth of field, but it leaves me wondering if maybe a little more for the whiskers would have been good.

 

Anyways, great photo.

Strange, I was sure I had commented on this one before.

 

Looks like a very good portrait, with even the right DOF so that one concentrates only on her face. She is very expressive, and as a cat-owned person myself, I can appreciate how hard it is to get them to pose sometimes.
