Who is the Expert, Wildlife Photographer or Master of Irresistible Cat Tricks?
Watch and listen as filmmaker Mitsuaki Iwago converses with the culprit:
Who can resist kitten videos? Not very many people. Not even famous Japanese wildlife photographer and filmmaker Mitsuaki Iwago apparently.
He was on the island of Okinawa shooting a television special, World Cats Travelogue. During the filming, the filmmaker who happens to love cats became more of an active participant than he would have expected.
As you can see by watching the video, it is a good think he is a cat-lover! It is a short video, and while the kitten is indeed cute, we especially appreciate how the photographer and the kitten appear to be having a two-way conversation the entire time.
According to the photographer you can best find cats using your nose rather than your eyes.
“Listen closely, watch closely and take a deep sniff. This will help you develop a ‘cat’s sense’. If you are using your full five senses as you walk around, the instant you turn into an alley you will either smell a cat or know where to look and find one. In doing this, you’re not really using your human eyes – you’re employing your ‘cat’s eyes’. Essentially, because humans are also natural living things, we have the ability to smell and read the air.”
Reading the air is an art that takes practice. We applaud his ability, but we’ll focus on the eyes…at least for the time being.
