[Loiosh is meatloafed on the back of the couch. The sun is behind him, so the back of his head has a partial halo. His left hindleg isn’t tucked up beneath him like the rest but instead droops down. ]

Product photography inevitably winds up including ‘random cool thing I saw while I was outside with a camera’ photography, because of course it does. Bunny prints!
But then I got down to business. One of the things I gotta think about with product photography is finding a good spot from which I can take pictures like this: Continue reading process: product photography
[ A sleek black cat is meatloafed inside a set of blue shelves, atop a bunch of tissue boxes. Her eyes glow yellow with flash, and she has a small white spot on her chest. ]
Sigdis doesn’t just have a spot on her chest, she also has a spot on her belly, & a good napping spot to boot. Continue reading cats: Sigdis has a Spot edition
[ Loiosh, an orange tabby, is sitting in a plastic storage bin, looking up to the left. The lid of the bin is covering about half of it, and there is a stack of post office shipping boxes on top of the lid. ]
