I wanted to make a cinematic type shot or old school movie poster shot, this is what I came up with.
model: my girlfriend candace
animal: my cat liger
Lighting was way more difficult than I anticipated. I had a whole lighting diagram thought up and it pretty much failed. Not to mention wind blew over my softbox and broke it :( Anyways I ended up snooting 1 sb800 on my cat. That was the hard part. I had to lure the sucker into place with cat food which took about 1 hour, such a pain. Then I had to illuminate the metal tower to make it "pop" I did that using 2 sb800's. 1 snooted on Candace, and the other zoomed at 24mm to spread the light better and get an even gradient. I PP'd everything in lightroom and CS3.
