Here are some shots I took practicing with my flash and my homemade light box, shadow box..whatever you call that. Anyway, I made a box using foam boards, it's a lot sturdier than the last won I made.
I had it set up and put a dark purple sheet around it to try and take pictures of my white cat Miu. Ever try to get your cat to pose??? HA! Of course, when I wanted here to pose for my she refused. But, the other day I was on my computer messing around and her she comes and plops right down in the box. I quick turned on the light, got out my camera and took some shots. Pretty soon PeeWee had to be in on the action too. They made pretty good models I think.
