Mushu is quite the ham. I have a lot of photographing this cat. I’m hoping to visit Wendy, at Ragnificent Ragdolls again, soon. I hope the other cats will get a turn.
These lovelies are Ragnificent Ragdolls Kit Kat, and Milky Way. Definitely a couple of sweet cats. They are Abby’s niece and nephew. Awesome little cats!
This is one of the first shots done with strobe lighting. I really like the way her eyes pop. It is amazing what having sufficient light can do for saturation. She’s such a sweet little cat, putting up with me using her as a subject for all sorts of photographic experiments. At first, her asymmetrical markings put me off. They really grow on you, kind of like a beauty mark. I’m not sure what the official classification of her markings would be. She has blue points, white socks, and some tortie, asymmetrical markings. We know that she is pure Ragdoll, but she does seem to show some Birman heritage. Sweet little cat…
This is Abby’s mom, Ragnificent Ragdolls Pixie Stix. She’s a really neat cat. I can see where Abby gets her personality.
This is an old shot of Velcro. We only have a few of her. There may be more on film, some where, but I keep forgetting to get my last film developed, much less, scanned. We really miss Velcro. Rest in peace, sweat heart.
One from the archives. This is one of the first shots through the macro lens. This particular lens, the 180 mm f3.5 Macro, likes a lot of light. This was what prompted me down the path towards flash photography.
One from the archives. This is Arlo, being very lazy. This is a mix of ambient light, and bounce flash. It does make some interesting tones. We have family visiting, for the next couple weeks. Too much to do, and too little time, so I apologize in advance, for the forthcoming archive shots. I promise fresh material after vacation.
Abby and Taz. After all the rough housing, Taz wants a hug. This is done on a bed, with a white fuzzy blanket, and white sheet covering the head board. There is a softbox, with continuous light, on the left. There are two strobes firing to the background, and one bare bulb in front.
Abby and Taz, playing. He can be a stinker, some times. This is done on a bed, with a white fuzzy blanket, and white sheet covering the head board. There is a softbox, with continuous light, on the left. There are two strobes firing to the background, and one bare bulb in front.
This is the first shot with really good color saturation in Abby’s eyes. This shot was done with an Alien Bees B800 monolight, and a beauty dish. There is a continuous softbox on the left side, and just a touch of rim lighting, but you really can’t see it, with this cropping. I never get tired of taking pictures of Abby. She’s so patient with me.
