Persians can be quite passive and uncooperative in the photographic studio. Bengal cats are fantastic in the studio. Full of activity and providing great, fleeting poses with a wild, wide-eyed intensity. Persians just sit there with a take it or leave it attitude. Can you blame them? Of course not. Cat photography is by people and for people.
This grey Persian is staying put. Forget cat wrangling. Forget the cat tease. She is doing what she wants to do and the “people” can take it or leave it.
The ironic thing about it is this. The Persian profile is not that great. It is flat. There are almost no features.

In the picture, Helmi is using a high quality digital SLR Canon camera with a moderate telephoto lens. The picture is taken by flash light from 4 lights around the cat.
