Cat Eye Blue II
Cotton strikes a classic Hollywood portrait pose and flashes his baby blues.
An impromptu portrait, I noticed Cotton laying in the sunlight from the setting sun coming through the french doors acting as a backlight and "fur" light.
Cotton was laying next to a 5 inch reflector with a 250w @3200K lamp on a mini-boom.
I turned it on and used it as a key light.
I then turned on a home made soft box and set it 45 degrees camera right.
I did this to provide a little fill and to make Cotton's pupils get smaller to show his irises.
When I saw how his eyes glowed after that I about peed myself trying to to get back to my camera and position to take a shot!!! :-)
Fortunately he seemed fascinated by the soft box and kept staring at it. That let me get several shots.
