Behind The Lens

Location
The photo was taken at my friend's Gumbo party in Brooklyn, NY
Time
Taken on January 10, 2019 late afternoon. We were cooking the Gumbo in the kitchen and the cat was sitting on the dining table looking at us intrigued and mesmerized by the smell of seafood.
Lighting
Dining area was dark and I did not wanted to crank up my ISO hence the flash allowing to freeze the frame at 1/80.
Equipment
Nikon D90 Sigma 17.0-70.0 mm f/2.8-4.0 ƒ/8.0 45.0 mm 1/80 ISO 500 Flash on (on camera) Handheld
Inspiration
The way Shannon (the cat) was sitting on the dining table very still almost hypnotized by the cooking smell.
Editing
Basic Lightroom adjustments
In my camera bag
I have upgraded since to a Nikon D7500 with a Nikon 18-200 f3.5-5.6 and a D750 with a Irix 11mm f4
Feedback
When photographing cats, keep in mind that they set the pace and choose when to be photographed. Be patient and move slow.
