About the Image(s)

Side lit one studio strobe with a parabolic umbrella. The hardest part was getting him to face the light source

Nicely done! The composition is pleasant and having Donny look into the light source is very successful. Your use of negative space is well done as is the tonal range, and of course he is tack sharp. I wouldn't change a thing.   Posted: 05/04/2022 18:13:12

I'm surprised Donny was happy to look at the light-cats' normal behaviour is either to look away or close their eyes. I'm a cat lover so I think he is beautiful and well worth taking lots of photos. I also like the negative space and this is an example of where a white line round the image would spoil it. Giving lots of black over to the left is good.

Give him a stroke from me for being a wonderful model!   Posted: 05/05/2022 05:04:41

Really great lighting. I like the way the whiskers come out so clear and white. I agree with the others' comments so far.   Posted: 05/07/2022 17:39:11

You have a great, very attractive model. The lighting is very good, and you need to give Donny a treat for looking at the light. As has already been noted, it is very sharp and the whiskers stand out very well. I like the mono much better than the color.   Posted: 05/09/2022 15:18:40
