Your pictures are so warm and loving. I simply love everything about them. I am curious as to what camera/lens you use to take your pictures with. I am always trying to find a better way to capture pictures. =D

Thank you :). My camera is a Nikon D7000, although the lens type is probably more important. The two lenses I use for photographing pets (and other near subjects) are a 24-70mm f2.8 lens and a 35mm f1.8 lens. Where possible I prefer to use the 35mm as it's sharper than the zoom, but the zoom lens is more flexible. The main thing is that both allow for wide apertures and shallow depths of field - I tend to shoot in A mode (aperture priority) so I can control the depth of field, and I adjust the ISO manually to keep the shutter speed up to avoid camera shake if shooting without a flash indoors.

I've also got a flash unit and I've been getting into using that recently (all the action shots use the flash). Sometimes I use bounce flash - bouncing off the ceiling to give a more diffuse light. Sometimes I mount the flash on a tripod with a flash umbrella (my camera and the flash support Nikon's CLS so can do remote flash control without needing any extra kit).

That was very informative. Thank you for giving me an idea on how to capture more evolved photos of animals/pets. I would love to try the bounce flash, although I haven't yet bought a flash unit. So thanks again for your input. I can't wait to see more of your works.

You can only do it in descriptions on deviations (it doesn't work in comments). If you look at any deviation then to the right of the photo there's a column and in that column is a "Details" section and in there is "Link" and "Thumb". If you copy bit the bit from "Thumb" (which begins :thumb) and paste that into the description on your deviation then that will insert a thumbnail and link when reading it - you can use the "Preview" to check it's worked :).
