I've always had great difficulty getting nice photos of the girls. I've got an average digital camera, I guess, nothing fancy but not horribly cheap. Unless the photos are taken in good, natural lighting with no flash, however, their eyes always come out glowing. It drives me crazy as their blue eyes are one of their best features and I can never get good pictures of them!
I've tried using my photo editor program to fix the red eye, but the results are always very unnatural looking -- ditto with the auto red eye program on my camera.
Anyhow, the following are photos from this morning's photo shoot!
Anna: (interrupts) "Weee will bees America's Next Top Models!"
Zuzu: "I will bees America's Next Top Model! I bees 'couture' and 'edgy' model! You just 'catalog' and 'commercial' model!'"
Anna: "What be's 'couture' and 'edgy?' Wet belly, maybe???"
ANYWAY .... As all pictures were taken about six AM, I had no natural lighting. It's easy to tell which photos were taken with flash due to the glowing eyes; and which with no flash -- no glowing eye, but blurry.
Additionally, some photos were taken pre-eye cleaning and combing, some afterward.
(Himalayans/Persians need their eyes cleaned about twice a day. As Anna and Zu have light faces, it's been impossible for me to ever get them looking perfectly clean -- every little stain shows up on them. I should try that Eye Envy stuff someday. They are both pretty tolerant about this eye-cleaning business, but they don't like it and get wriggly if I take too long. As a result, I usually just settle for getting off the goo and don't worry too much about the stains.)
