Christmas Eve Eve

T’was the day before the day before and all through the house… Of course, I did the very things I hate to do and promise each year to not do again. Among other things, I did NOT take deep breaths through Advent and celebrate the waiting, I did NOT pay close attention to those around me, I did NOT do any of the things I should have to (1) remember that the Day is to celebrate the birth of Christ, and, to (2) spend time drinking in the sparkle of each day. Ah well. I may have Grinchified it so far but…as soon as I get home from work tomorrow night……………I wanted to experiment with indirect, gold reflected light. My normal model is out on strike so I was able to persuade Diane to let me experiment with barn door modifiers, gold reflectors and all with indirect lighting. She was a great model and so I will have a lockout with the regular modeling staff (smile).  The first shot is of Diane as I move reflectors, shot angles, barn doors, and me around the room. The second is the best cat ever, Missy.  The third shot is the Mollie Cat, a calico. Just a year old or so and t.r.o.u.b.l.e. The last is the black & white cat who is very much a fraidy cat, her name is Mandi, I only got one shot of her before she went like a rocket to the other side of the planet.
