Not Another 52 Project?!?!?!

A 52 Week Project | Monochromatic/Achromatic/Color Portraiture

Week 34: Bad Kitty | Danger Kitty

This week, my family rocked out with the Godriguez family at the Tampa Comic Con and there was a lot of awesome art, Cosplay, and toys to get the inspiration flowing.  In the spirit of all that, I decided to have a bit of fun this week.  I used the kitty paws all the girls got (these belong to my munchkin) and found the bag in my closet with some of my past Halloween costume materials for the fluffy kitty yarn and random loose feathers to come up with this little steam punky “Bad Kitty”.

Besides having an awesome time at the Comic Con, it was certainly nice to get to hang out with good people!

For this shot, I used a 100mm #canon   lens on my  #canon 60D (tripod), and 1 mono in a softbox and my 600ex-rt flash snooted.  After a little sprucing up in PS, we have this final shot!

So, without further ado, here is my submission for Week 34 of this project.

The rules I have laid out are simple – 1) these portraits can be of myself or another model, but cannot be the same image as my other project; 2) There must be a lighting element – whether my studio lights or a consciously planned shoot using natural lighting from the golden hour, etc. The key being consciously planned – no “on a whim”, point the camera at someone and call it complete. These will be portraits per the definition:

por·trait
/ˈpôrtrət/

Noun

1. A painting, drawing, photograph, or engraving of a person.
2. A representation or impression of someone or something in language or on film.

Synonyms
picture – likeness – portraiture – portrayal – effigy

My goal is to expand my portraiture abilities and processing as well as direction I give others while also working on my creative muscles and my own personal style, which I believe to be shooting what I like to see!
