Milk Bath Kitties

Better late than never, right?

I did this session on January 2nd, edited three images and then never went back to the folder again. I had intended to write a blog post, but just got too busy. So I decided to finish both the editing and images…finally ;). At the bottom will be a behind the scenes image and the gear/settings info. It was funny because I tried about 5 different kitties (Sphynx and Lykoi) and two couldn’t escape fast enough, and three actually seemed to enjoy themselves! So cats and water can be done..with the right cat! Haha!

And for fun, I added a bit of strawberry milk powder for a pop of color!

Behind the scenes….

I was using a two flash setup. I had a chair pulled between the two lights and shot from above the cats, and yes, I did almost fall in…several times. Haha! I used powdered milk which I whisked into the water to get rid of the clumps. It took approximately two boxes to get the water to have a white appearance (and I only had about 3″ of water in there!). I was still shooting Nikon at that time, so my gear was the Nikon D810 with the Sigma 35 1.4 ART. My settings were ISO 100, SS 1/125, f/3.5. As far as editing these images, mostly I just used hand edits. The actions that I did choose to use were from Chasing Light’s Chemistry set, and GTG’s Lara Jade set.

The kitties loved how the flowers would float away! I spent a lot of time getting on and off the chair to push the flowers back toward them!
