People are constantly changing in their expressions and appearances. Landscapes are slowly changing. Cats are somewhere in between. While cats change more often than seasonally, they are normally ready to enjoy the little things in life – such as a good nap. There is a lesson of contentment to be learned from cats.
In this case, Nutmeg (my cat) was quite happy to watch me take pictures of her. For this picture, I set up a flash on the side of the bed and aimed it at the joint between the wall and the ceiling. This lit up the background. To light up the cat, I had one flash to the camera right, and another flash that was reflected with a golden reflector from the camera left. This helped enrich the colors of Nutmeg’s fur.
