The Outside Adventure!

 

When it comes to outdoor photos I have always used only natural light and a reflector rather than my studio flash units. But I decided I wanted to try something a little different so I took one of my lights outside to play! Guenhwvar and Ylva the Lykoi kittens were happy to be my models. I rarely photograph my kitties outside because I don’t want to risk them running off, but these two girlies are always under my feet and believe they are my shadows so this was safe. Please do not photograph  any animal outside and off the leash unless your yard is secure!

This shows what my setup looked like. I was shooting in full sun with no shade.Other then a couple of small variations, most images were shot at f/8, Shutter 1/250, ISO- 64. I used my Nikon D810 & Sigma 85 1.4. background

Now that I have talked about the technical stuff, it is time for the photos!

Don’t forget to stop and smell the…flowers?

I turned the flash toward a little bush also in my yard to try for some “natural habitat” type of photos. These were shot with the same single light, but were edited to look like evening shots.

I thought it would be fun to post a video of how crazy it can be to photograph to very active kittens. It definitely requires a lot of patience and a fast finger to snap the images!

And here are a couple of bloopers (not the best quality but too funny not to share!).

Hi! I am Brittney Gobble, and I have been an animal lover since I was able to crawl after a cute puppy or kitten. When I was about 6 I told my mom I was going to be “rich” one day. When she asked what did “rich” mean, I quickly responded “It means I can have lots of pets!”. I suppose I have achieved that dream…. I married my veterinarian (and love of my life) in 2006 and now breed and show top quality Sphynx cats. I have three beautiful kids and many “four legged” family members running around. A couple of years ago I picked up a camera to begin photographing my kittens, and from there my love of photography has grown. There is nothing that I love more then capturing the “look” in an animal’s eye that truly shows their personality.

    Love this photo set! I thought my favorites were the bright and flower-y photos until I continued to scroll! I love the darker themed ones as well. Once again, fantastic job! <3
