I was walking through the house the other day when I spotted Luxie kitty sitting on the table. Now, I've posted lots of photos of Luxie on this table, but it is usually in the morning when she is helping me with my journaling and planning. This time it's a little different. Can you guess how?
This is early evening light. You can see that the window behind her is still light, but not the morning sun bright. She is actually being illuminated from the evening sun filtering in through our front door. So you see how it sort of makes her glow? The light is coming in through the door and reflecting off the tile.
She is a room and a half away from the light, so it is not very bright. You'll also notice that this photo has lots of grain or noise, that's because it was a low light situation. But the light from the door is still bright enough to capture catchlights in her eyes.
When you are photographing your cat using natural indoor light, be sure and keep your eyes open for different lighting situations. Little pockets of light make all the difference.
For our artsy photo this week, I used Topaz Labs
