Pictures of Cats – Dec 08 Outtakes

Posted by on Jan 01 2009 | BOC Outtakes

< !– google_ad_section_start –>
Dec was a fun month for cat pictures. We also ended up with some photos that were a bit off or not quite what we wanted but were still interesting to see. They’re a digital ‘Happy Accident’. Maybe we should come up with a better name other than outtakes for next month. Calling them outtakes might sound like these images are something we might want to delete and they’re too fun to get rid of. Time to put on the thinkin’ caps.

Pictures of Cats – Nov 08 Outtakes

Posted by on Dec 01 2008 | BOC Outtakes

< !– google_ad_section_start –>
Here is our new set of outtakes for Nov 2008. From all the pictures of cats we took in November these are the ones we hoped turned out but never did. Cats will be cats, right? We’ve got flukes, odd balls, fuzzy, and ‘I don’t know how that happened’ type pictures. We think each one maintains a certain visual appeal in a more artistic sort of way. It’s always fun getting an image you like even though it wasn’t something you planned.

Pictures of Cats – October Outtakes

Posted by on Nov 01 2008 | BOC Outtakes, Pictures of cats

The number of conditions that have to be in place to make a good cat image are numerous. The cat needs to cooperate first off the Camera’s inner workings and settings need to be on the ball and lastly the photographer’s aim and click of the shutter. Sometimes everything works the way we want or the way we hope they will and other times they don’t quite work out. These image are from when things don’t go quite right. Although they aren’t what we were trying to achieve the results are none-the-less visually interesting and aesthetically pleasing.

October had a few unexpected results with Cats that we thought would be fun to share. Enjoy the unexpected.

Pictures of Cats – September Outtakes

Posted by on Oct 01 2008 | BOC Outtakes, Pictures of cats

Here is our set of outtakes for September 2008 that didn’t quite make the grade for a normal post but still had a certain visual appeal from a purely accidental perspective. A type of feline happy photo accident if you will. Either way we hope they make for some interesting viewing. Enjoy, and we’ll see ya next month with more outtakes.

Pictures of Cats – August Outtakes

Posted by on Sep 01 2008 | BOC Outtakes, Pictures of cats

Here is our monthly group of outtakes for August 2008. Dax is the primary cat in this set of outtakes. I guess he wasn’t willing to stay still long enough for me to get a good picture. He was constantly on the go. The only time I remember seeing him not moving was when he was sleeping. Either way it made for some interesting images. The others are here too in their own unique way.

Pictures of Cats – July Outtakes

Posted by on Aug 11 2008 | BOC Outtakes, Pictures of cats

Here is our monthly installment of Outtakes for July. We had a good share of misfires, late shots and other photo related mishaps. We collected a few of the more ‘interesting’ photos together for all to see.

Spooky didn’t make it in any of the outtakes this time as he was cooperative with us, but Jasmine did since she really didn’t stay still for too long.

Take a look and enjoy our monthly collection of ‘happy accidents’.

Yeaaah

Pictures of Cats – June Outtakes

Posted by on Jul 02 2008 | BOC Outtakes, Pictures of cats

Here is our monthly group of outtakes for June 2008. These are the ones we hoped turned out but never did.

Cats will be cats, right? We’ve got flukes, odd balls, fuzzy, and ‘I don’t know how that happened’ type
pictures. Certainly an aquired taste for the most part.

Take a look and enjoy our monthly collection of ‘happy accidents’.

Here is our monthly round of outtakes for May 2008. These are the ones we hoped turned out but didn’t. Some accidental, some flukes, some weird, but each image a unique, never to be repeated, interesting picture in their own right. Well, you’ll either like them or you won’t.

Band of Cats Outtakes – April 2008

Posted by on May 02 2008 | BOC Outtakes, Pictures of cats

Here are April’s round of outtakes of the Band of Cats. Cats definitely have a mind of their own. Unless they’re willing to let you take their picture it just isn’t going to happen. Most times than not they’re occupied with other, more important things. The only time they really show any interest in the camera is when the flash goes off or the shutter makes a ‘clicking’ sound.

Luckily there are those times when things go well and we get a good image. Then there are times when they don’t as you’ll see in our latest set of outtakes.

Band of Cats Outtakes – March 2008

Posted by on Apr 08 2008 | BOC Outtakes, Pictures of cats

Here’s our monthly round of outtakes. Those shots that didn’t quite turn out the way we hoped but still were kind of cool to look at for various aesthetic reasons.

Looking at these images it seems Jasmine was the least cooperative in front of the camera or maybe it was that the other 3 cats were more cooperative than usual. Who knows? Either way, here they are. Mostly with Jasmine and a few of Jade, Dax and Spooky and then some pictures that are hard to tell which cat we’re looking at.

Cool, fun and a nice deviation from are other cat shots. Let your inhibitions run rampant and see the Band of Cats a little differently.

Band of Cats Outtakes – Februray 2008

Posted by on Mar 02 2008 | BOC Outtakes, Pictures of cats

Here is our latest set of outtakes for February. We took a bunch of pictures in February and as usual some just don’t turn out the way we had hoped. None-the-less these pictures are visually interesting, unique and worthy of the title ‘Outtake’.

So what makes a good outtake? It’s hard to say really. Most of the time it’s based on personal tastes. You either like it or you don’t. There are images that are just no good such as the bad exposures and out of focus shots or where someone has blinked, looked away or had some gunk on their chin.

A good outtake for me usually has some kind of artistic quality to it. Therefore I look for abstract things like shape, form, texture and color. Other elements like composition and subject matter have an impact too.

Anyways, I hope you find something that appeals to you in our latest set of outtakes.

Enjoy!

Band of Cats Outtakes – January 2008

Posted by on Jan 31 2008 | BOC Outtakes, Funny Cats, Pictures of cats

Our last set of outtakes where so much fun, we decided to make it a regular feature here on Band of Cats.

Since we’re always trying new things with the camera there’s always a few shots that don’t quite work out but are still kind of interesting in their own unique way.

Like the Joker said in Batman, “If you wanna make an omlette, you gotta break a few eggs.” These are some of our ‘broken eggs’ but worth keeping.

Therefore, each month we’ll be collecting up the more abstract and accidental pictures of cats we taken and letting everyone take a look.

So, for all the impressionists, surrealists and lovers of accidental photography, sit back and enjoy our latest set of outtakes for January 2008!
