Under and Over It

I was going to hit you with a dope track from 5FDP, but most of you would probably have a heart attack... and I just don't need that on my conscience ;)

So here's some cute kittens instead: https://www.google.com/search?q=cute+kitten&client=safari&rls=en&tbm=isch&tbo=u&source=univ&sa=X&ei=hTXfUrXmJOHsyQG784GACg&ved=0CDIQsAQ&biw=1290&bih=653
I would love to know how you got this lighting. It's too perfect!!

@kld63012 Thanks Kate! I just got a new studio light (I've never had studio lights before), and it has a reflective umbrella with it (they can be purchased separately too.) I placed my speed light in the top of the umbrella (where all of the wires and such are) and tripped the shutter. The umbrella drives the flash downwards. Probably 90% of my shooting is just playing around experimenting; that is what I was doing when I got this shot :)

@grizzlysghost I love that it was part of experimenting. I am no where close to any extra equipment, I shoot only with the 18-55 that came with the camera still but I can't wait until I learn more and have the chance to experiment with things like this. Even with the equipment the creativity still needs to be there and the creativity is so obvious in this. Thanks for sharing your process! It's being bookmarked so I can try something similar with lighting in the future!!

Cool Shot! I am like the cat and had to check out the
5FDP... no heart attack... they're kind of a mash up of Linkn Park / TOOL (ish) ... ish! ;) ... I do like the photo though!
