One photographer’s fresh take on cat photography

A surprising perspective of cats at the International Cat Show in Vilnius, Lithuania.

When photographer Andrius Burba set up a kitty portrait studio during the International Cat Show in Vilnius, Lithuania he wanted to take his feline photography in a slightly different direction. His idea was to photograph the kitties from below, revealing a “part of of the body which people don’t get to see daily.”

His setup took nearly seven hours of prep, followed by a full day of shooting and then about for weeks of editing. The behind the scene video from his shooting day shows off a bit of what his setup looked like and how he was able to wrangle the kitties who posed for his camera.
