Catsmas lights

A few weeks ago, I was approached about trying to do a shoot with Christmas lights.  I didn’t realize how fun it was to play with these during a shoot, or think about the warmth created when having the lights directly around you.  We had a powwow to get a general vibe for the shoot and got started.  We shot with just the Christmas lights as a source and brought out a strobe for me to get some practice in.  There was also a mixing up of the gear even more so than usual since I had random items on hand.   Even though the final images could have been edited to match, I took a different approach.  The specific cameras gave me a feel, the Nikon was dark and “contrasty” while the I felt light and softer with the Fuji.
