This is today's image:
Bastet the Egyptian Cat

f/6.3 1/125s, ISO 500 (forgot to check the ISO) 50mm, Nikon D-300
Flash to camera right facing the cat - do not remember settings
Slave light with a blue gel on it, Christmas lights in the background.

This one is in response to the Daily shoot challenge:
Daily shoot
"#ds219 Look for abstract shapes and designs today. Make a photo of a subject everyone has seen that's not easily recognizable."

No words neccesary

and finally Elli wanted to know how I focused yesterdays self portrait. This is how I set it up:
self portrait set up It's a glove with a ring on it. I just put my hand at that exact spot.

Don't forget it Twitter Tuesday at Tasra Mars Check out other 365rs

Here's a quick tip I found on reducing noise in photoshop. You know for those days you forget to check your ISO or those very low light conditions.

I've been at the hospital with my dad since 5:30 AM until 8:00 PM
what started out as a simple procedure has turned into a full blown medical crisis for him. He's having open heart surgery, triple bypass, on Thursday. Please keep him in your prayers. Thank you

That Egyptian cat shot is awesome - love the colors and bokeh. Sounds like you had quite bit of time to play with your camera this evening.

Nice work on the other shots as well.

Thanks Sasi
No actually I didn't have a lot of time tonight. I just did some quick set ups. Photography helps me relax and get rid of the stress.
I was at the hospital all day today with my dad.

I'm so sorry to hear about your dad's health struggles. I will be praying for him and for the entire family.

I love the color and lighting on the cat photo. I kind of find myself wishing I could see more of his legs/feet, but it's a beautiful shot.

I like your Daily Shoot photo, but I must say it's not something we all see every day. :-) I haven't seen one of those in person in several years, actually.

Take care, my friend. I'm praying for you.

I love the cat and the Christmas tree lights. You really seem to throwing yourself into photographic technique in this blog. I am impressed.
