So obviously, I'm most known for my jewelry. But I am an avid shutterbug in my spare time. A photo of my fluffy kitty, Ginger, was recently selected as a finalist to be used as ax example image in the sample and calibration kit sent with orders from iPrintfromHome! I'm really excited because not only is it my adorable kitty, but I've never had a photo of mine be recognized for anything. (Not that I've ever entered any photography contests but you know what I mean.)



More info on the contest here: http://www.phoenixfiredesigns.com/blog/2014/06/ginger-is-a-finalist

What's funny is this shot is her "helping" me take jewelry photos. I set up my studio lights and she stuck her face in them and after rubbing the bulb a bit, sat down and I caught this quick shot. Believe it or not, this is just my living room but the brightness of the lights made for the background going all blacked out. This photo isn't even edited; it was just one of those perfect moments right out of the camera!

(Ginger was found abandoned in a canal on the side of a busy street when she was about 6 weeks old. I was originally going to foster her but wound up falling in love and she wound up joining the family. Cheesy Now, she's just over a year old and has turned into the most beautiful, long haired cat and it's hard to imagine her very humble origins!)

I love my kitty and I always thought this was a great shot of her, so it's even more exciting that it was selected as a finalist! I'm proud too that I'm growing as a photographer when I get a shot like this. Grin

It might have been a lucky shot, but I would say that you have a great eye!  That is one gorgeous photo!

Congrats on your entry!

Maybe in the future we will see more of your photography "art"...

Thank you! All three of our girls are rescues. In fact, we've ONLY ever had rescue animals my whole life. I think they make the best companions. Cheesy

Beautiful!  I really like the lighting and the softness of the fur.
