Lucy.........practice photo shoot.

She is just such a ham! I tried to include the other kitties, but they just weren't having any of it!

The lighting isn't the greatest, but it's what I've got to work with until Uncle Sam kindly sends me my refund check, and I can order my new equipment!

Re: Lucy.........practice photo shoot.

Lucy is gorgeous and I love the surrounds you created for her photos! I will have to keep this in mind when I do my pictures of my fosters...

...I have to comment, please don't take it as a criticism, it is just something I noticed:
Lucy's eyes appear to be different sizes in the first four photos, but in the final two, her eyes look equal in size. Was the light source coming from the left and making her left eye (in shadow) appear smaller?

Re: Lucy.........practice photo shoot.

Good eye, Heidi, and not to worry, that's why I'm doing practice shoots!

I don't have any of my equipment yet, including lighting! I'm using two construction lamps with daylight simulated bulbs in, and I don't have any stands, so I'm improvising for practice sake..........and because I'm impatient! The construction lamps are a pain in the butt to use! Plus, one of the ways I was getting her attention was by using a giant sunflower, and she was really being silly trying to get it. I've got lots to improve, but it's fun! I learn a little each time I do this!

I know there are other photography folks out there, I'd honestly be open to any advise you may have!

If that is just practice I can't wait for the "real" stuff.

Why, Gerilyn Becker, I believe you've oudone yourself! Gorgeous pictures, I think the second is my favorite.

Those are great but remember what you want the audience to focus on Sometimes my eyes are looking everywhere and other times I am looking at Lucy. I like the second and last one

I hear what you are saying, and take your critique constructively. Maybe make the props a little more closed in, closer together, or less, so that I can crop differently. I don't want to end up making every shot a "close up" just to draw her in closer though.

See, I learn something everytime I do this.
