Hi

The pic is sharp and well lit...very nice..
What is your lightintg setup? Did you do this
in a studio or your lighting from home etc?

AND I love your photography website... the photo are very nice..
the flash you use to display your images are impressive..
did you code them yourself?

Regards

above all, it is more appropriate to post your image under Abstracts and Still-lifes. your subject is lifeless.

Paiseh, pardon my ignorance..I am really interested to learn your technique.. so, I hope you will bear with me.

How did you get that black background so black and let the cat so well lit?
No other lighting? You place the cat and background next to the window?
Do you use any background card etc?

Actually, if you don't mind, can you kindly shoot a pic of your setup with your cat but more wide so that I can see the set and the light etc.. BUT only if it is convenient for you.. I tried to do some still life but I cannot achieve this kind of quality.. But once again, only if it is convenient for you..

Regards

oh no problem. actually the background is pretty dark. i just used photoshop's 'burn' too to darken it. i do not have a pic of the setup, but i just put the kitty on a mini fridge beside the window and took the pic.

Hmm.. let me try to break it down.
1) Put kitty against dark (or black background)
2) Looking at the light.. look like it is quite sunny?
3) Snap the pic with WB set to err.. Shady/Cloudy or Auto or Direct Sunlight?
4) Result Picture
5) Select the background (either channel, select etc) and burn it..?
6) Increase the saturation and then unsharp mask?

1) Put kitty against dark (or black background)
* Yes

2) Looking at the light.. look like it is quite sunny?
* Yes, it was pretty bright just now

3) Snap the pic with WB set to err.. Shady/Cloudy or Auto or Direct Sunlight?
I used auto WB

4) Result Picture

5) Select the background (either channel, select etc) and burn it..?
* I didn't do any selection, just free hand burning (using mouse)

6) Increase the saturation and then unsharp mask?
* Increased saturation slightly (as straight out of cam color from my cam pretty rox) and unsharp mask
