Default Portrait of wife's cat.

Sony F828, HVL-F1000 strobe mounted on camera bounced off the ceiling, and Sunpak 383 with slave button mounted on tripod and placed behind the cat, and a 20" x 30" white reflector board held in front of the cat to reflect light back onto the cats face.

Considering its your wife’s cat you got it to pose very well. Many cats seeing all of that equipment might well have said “I’m outta here”

Nice job. You seem to have equipped your 828 well and know how to use it.

If you want to post it directly the magic code is

without the space after the first brackets.

Very nice, Jack. Normally, I don't like blown-out highlights, but every now and then they work for, not against, a picture. The white forms a kind of halo around that beautiful little face. (Boy, do I ever love cats.)

Thank you for your nice comment, bocultry.

I am one of these individuals that likes most all life forms. Dogs, cats, etc, insects and spiders and snakes. As long a they stay in their place and don't invade my home I will do what I can to help them and protect them from harm from humans that mis understand them.
