Thank you everyone for your kind words and support. I appreciate you taking the time to comment. For those of you who asked ... I photographed this cat using a strobe/softbox on seamless paper. PS work as follows: saturated the eyes to bring them out, selectively desaturated other areas, played around with levels/curves/dodging to really whiten the background and fade her into it, then applied soft filters. #3279962

Did You Know?

BetterPhoto Websites: If you see an orange website link directly under the photographer's name, it's totally okay. It's not spam. The reason: BetterPhoto is the one that offers these personal photography websites. We are supporting our clients with those links.

Unavailable EXIF: If there is no other information but 'Unavailable' in the EXIF (meaning no EXIF data exists with the photo), the 'Unavailable' blurb is not displayed. If there is any info, it shows. Many photos have the EXIF stripped out when people modify the image and resave it, before uploading.


The following truth is one of the core philosophies of BetterPhoto:

I hear, I forget.
I see, I remember.
I do, I understand.

You learn by doing. Take your next online photography class.
