    Default cat portrait

    I was testing my new nikon lens 70-300 AF ED VR . I want a nice bokeh so try to a long focal and fill the frame, I must to go on my knees to do this, I overexposed de meter +1 because a white cat is white, and I don't wanna a gray cat, this color may be fool the camera meter. focus in AF-C continous because cats not quite, and focus in the eyes, this is the best of 2 photos, I reviewed in camera screen and I love it. Make a crop to center the cat's face.

    Mind me, but if you keep those ears the picture would come out even better!
