Lighting is a bitch.
Normally my nails have enough contrast to get the point across in the sub-optimal lighting I have access to, but the silver on the shiny lilac color is subtle enough that I spent about four times longer than usual trying to get the lighting right (no shadow, minimal reflection, still enough light for a good picture). I finally decided what I had was as good as I was going to get, and then tweaked the levels a bit in post so you can see the colors better.
I’d do more photography if 1) I had a camera with a manual focus (will be fixed soon), and 2) the lighting and potential backdrops in my apartment didn’t suck so badly.
Watch out for werewolves.
DC Cats ain’t got no love!
Also, I’m a bit of a Batman fan.
After a couple of days off from the Marvel Cats and DC Cats memes, I decided to return to them tonight.
In the handful of tweets using #dccats, I spotted this:
Brad_Duncan: @beckadoodles would a kitten catwoman be too surreal? #dccats
No, I decided. No it would not.
I don’t normally go in for elaborate backgrounds, but this time after figuring out how the kitty was sitting, I realized she really needed something to sit on, and it just seemed natural that Catwoman would be sitting at the top of a building at night, particularly when she’s actually a cat.
Well, what else would you do with a white nail pen on a brown base?
I totally did not intend to post a video today, but when I got home, the cat was just posing for the camera. Of course by the time I got the camera, she wouldn’t sit still. Then she started attacking. So I turned the video on.
Since the camera in hand was the DV still cam, the quality isn’t great, but it’s cute regardless.
DC cats, on the other hand, have not been a trending topic. I decided to give them some love.
