Photographing cats on the street is the biggest difference from the family in the street The environment is very complicated, and the picture will be more interesting if you take some of the street environment. At this time, we need a lens that can explain the environment. The NIKKOR Z 35mm f/1.8 S is a very good choice. The large aperture of f/1.8 is enough to provide a good blur effect, and it also has a multiple focus system. It is an autofocus drive system that also helps improve optical performance. By combining with the auto-focus drive device in the lens body, the position of the lens focusing group can be accurately controlled.

NIKKOR AF-P NIKKOR 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6E ED VR
Stray cats usually have a certain degree of psychological trauma. The memory of being abandoned by their owners will make them very afraid of humans. Therefore, it will be very difficult to shoot. Sometimes we may need to shoot from a distance. You may need to bring a telephoto lens to go out. The NIKKOR AF-P NIKKOR 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6E ED VR is very suitable. This lens is lightweight and only about 680g. Portability and other aspects have reached a balance. The stepping motor built into the lens helps to achieve quiet operation and fast focusing, which can also be used during movie recording. By adopting the drive system of the focusing element group, the autofocus accuracy is further improved. Its VR vibration reduction function effectively reduces image blur caused by camera shake.

Feeding stray cats is not a behavior worth promoting. To get close to them, we can prepare some small toys, cat sticks, laser pointers They are all very good props, so that the cat can relieve the tension and the photographer has more opportunities to shoot. Sometimes in order to avoid disturbing the cats, we can try to use the silent shooting function. Take the Nikon Z 6 camera as an example. When this function is turned on, the camera’s focus alert sound will be turned off, and the electronic shutter is used for shooting to avoid shutter vibration. The sound produced is truly silent shooting.
