3 fur 1 Selfies on The Sunday Selfies & This Weeks Top Selfie Tip


Supurr Sunday salutations pawesome pals

Welcome to another selfie selection and today our theme is:

3 fur 1

And almost nailed it! MOL


As mew can see, Pandora, Smooch and Fudge worked their floofy tails off [well not really] to get this shot!

I'm calling it:

This Weeks Top Selfie Tip:

Last week we spoke about the impawtance of good lighting and fur this weeks top tip, we're talking about avoiding shadows.

So unless mew mew want a dark patch on your gorgeous furry fizzog, we suggest mew take your selfie while facing the sun if outdoors or with your back to it.  No weird side angles, well only if that's the artistic approach mew're aftur.  But fur a nice clean shot remember either behind mew or in front fur the best outcome. Inside this is a little more tricky with lamps and offurhead lights, so if mew can, use the same advice as fur outdoors unless mew have a selfie-light.

This is ours:


The one we have just clips on the iPhone - it's a couple of inches in diameter - and saves having to use the flash which we hate as it always makes mew have laser eyes. Using one of these removes the necessity of using the flash so often and it stops shadows, so mew get a nice even tone to your pic. 

We actually bought ours from Aldi fur less than £5, it has 3 light settings - as mew can see above - depending on what's required for the pic at paw.

Now we're not pho-tog experts at all, this is just what we've learnt offur the years of taking endless pics, and trying to take better pics.  Though we're sure most of our pics are still quite rubbish in the eyes of a professional, but then we aren't professionals, just a bunch of heathen cats trying to improve our skillz! MOL



If mew have any selfie tips, let us know and we'll share them here next week.


Hope mew're all having a great weekend and we'll be back on the morrow with another gorgeous mandala fur mew to colour.

Wishing mew a supurr chilled day with lots of snoozy snuggles

  1. We love that 3 in 1 selfie. It's especially visually appealing that you all have different colors and patterns to your fur. :)

    That selfie light is really cool, mew guys! We'll have to look into that.

  8. Love the shared selfie :)
    Mum loves the lighting tip.
    During winter it is always dark when mum gets home and lighting is poor.
    This shows us that we(mum) need a better light source for night shooting.

  14. Around here back in the day, it was about impossible as unlikely to find the three kitties we had here, close enough to make any kind of picture! MOL! So kudos on this 3 in one! Love how Fudge is having some time at the nether regions of Smoochie...looking to something?? Pandora is off in her own kind of session...MOL!

    We only use a real camera or an iPad, not sure if there are lights for it. We don' t see petcretary hardly ever turning on the camera flash, and the iPad does not have one that she knows of.
    Her cell is not a smart phone, and it takes no pictures at all...it does say hello and goodbye quite adequately however:)

    1. Hey Pipo dude, it's not easy getting a 3 fur 1, mew should hear the P.A. when we're all, all 6 of us are together and as soon as she opens her phone we scatter!

      Smooch had just returned from the garden and Fudge was rather keen to experience his fresh new outdoor aroma! MOL

      Oh wow your Petcretary has the best kind of phone effur, OLD SCHOOL all the way, we love that! XOX
