As for me, like most of the theme days, this stretched my comfort zone. I had literally no idea what to post until out cat Savannah decided to pose, and then all became clear. Well, not exactly. She's an indoor cat, a rescue, and she doesn't go outdoors (although she's been known to sneak out from time to time.) That means taking her portrait indoors.
I haven't got a studio. No umbrellas, no multiple flashes, no klieg lights. I have regular fluorescent swirly lamps that screw into Edison sockets. I could use the on-camera flash, but that tends to flatten the image. So I started shooting. Handheld, since Savannah's patience only lasts so long and then she wanders elsewhere. And so, I made my own luck by managing an indoor shot that wasn't blurry from my hand shake. Or the cat moving. Or the autofocus finding a bizarre spot to make razor sharp. I did shoot in in RAW and crop it in SilkyPix. I kind of like how it turned out. There's a lot of detail in her face!
