In Action by Wild-Soul In Action by Wild-Soul
My first real action shot of Levi. Sorry for the grain though. Had to up the ISO cause the lighting was pretty bad. ^^;

For low light, this is a great photograph! Even though it is grainy I enjoy the composition and it really spoke to me when I saw it. It says crazy playful kitten and reminds me of my own, as this is a position I myself have tried to capture (without luck by the way) Multiple times.

Obviously it would be great to say that you should have used flash instead of upping the ISO but I know in pet shots that is not always an option. The blurring that occurred with the paws and the tail is unfortunate and it does affect the image in a negative way, though I think you knew this already. Using a bounce flash off the ceiling would have upped the light without casting a heavy shadow off the back wall, or even a diffuser on your flash (it does work on pop ups, even if it looks ridiculous! Feel free to look up the milk carton diffuser, I did try it and it works great - even for animal portraits!). I am trying to get into the habit of using the fill in flash as opposed to just upping the ISO when I can, as it does create a much better image technique wise.

All in all, love this photo!!! I very rarely critique anything that doesnt impact on me in a strong way!

I love this image what a wonderful job you did capturing Levi.. Do you have a faster Lens like a f/2.8 it would help.

No, unfortunatly I don't have anything faster. The macro lense does have a f/2.8 but it isn't really fast.

I didn't either once, now days I use the Canon 17-55mm f 2/8 buying it in July last year when the USD was low saving around 1/3 off the price otherwise I would not have it at all, its my walk around lens now and great for indoor night time shots as well. Of course there are faster lenses but I have no need for those ones.

It will come one day keep saving.
I hope you don't have to wait as long as I did .. :hug:

Maybe I'll get me one sometime. But I've to look into it at first. Maybe they've something similar to your Canon 17-55mm for Nikon.

For an ISO of 3200 the grain is hardly noticeable. Good shot!
