I thought about making various jokes on the "cat" theme. But - why?

Model is the lovely Tiffany ([link]) shot in Oleg Volk's studio. The cat is Gremlin.

Some funny things happened while I was shooting at Oleg's. First off, I started with the lights set up the way he had them. Subconsciously, as I kept shooting, I was moving the lights and adjusting the settings until - presto! - I was right back to shooting my "usual" lighting. He has a huge softbox on a boom arm and I took it off the arm and rested it on a step-ladder so that it was right at floor level, at right angles to the model. There was a light behind the sweep (serving as a flash trigger) and I kept turning its power lower and lower until it was barely acting as a fill. One thing this illustrates is that the actual light units don't mean much; if you use whatever light you have in the same way the resulting photos will look pretty much the same.

Postwork - heavy desaturation (-20) and a flare layer. Tiffany's skin is very pale and the light reflected a lot of pink tones off of her. Desaturating the image seemed like it was a good idea, so I tried it.

You've really got me with this one.

I love the colors used, especially with desaturation--her skin comes out as an incredible shade with a vintage/gothic tone. And I love fabric, because, well, I love fabric. And kitty!

So yeah, I love this.
