Working in the kitten room


I was working in the kitten room this weekend going through several rolls of fabric I was given when I was still in Maine. I like having large pieces of fabric to make backgrounds to take photos of kittens and my office was right next to a business that made custom upolstry fabrics. They would often order samples and no longer need them and instead of throwing them out they would come to our office and offer them to us. I grabbed everything that was left over from what the other women wanted and I ended up with a few decent sized pieces that would work as a backdrop.

Skippy thought he would help me test the out.. but I am not sure he thought they were really appropriate..

Mom, are you sure this isn't too busy? and where is my bowtie?

I have a new bow tie? COOL!

IDK, stripes just aren't my thing.. 

What do you think Fleurp? 

I agree, we look much better without the backdrop

They totally refused to sit still, even with the promise of treats, until I removed the backdrops. Just something you have to deal with when photographing cats I guess. I was quickly running out of daylight and there is no light fixture in this room yet (we are going to hire an electrician to put one in) so I didn't really have time to wait for them to cooperate.

I now have a total of nine different backdrops and a nice pile of fabric that was just too small to work that I am going to try to turn into something.. either catnip toys or cat beds. We'll see. Since right now I don't have anywhere to set up my sewing machine, it will be a while before I get to it.

  6. I like the stripey background! All would work well for Manny and Chili Bruce, since they often photograph as black blobs.

  7. I love bowties on kitties, but I don't know if my kitties would like them.

  8. We agree ... your kitties are perfect just the way they are ... and don't require a backdrop ;)

  10. That second picture of Skippy is the best. Hahaha. Was it casual Tuesday and that's why he didn't have his bowtie?

  11. You can make catnip mats with 1/2 yard of fabric. Fold it in half inside out, add batting and sew the edges leaving 2 inches not sewn. Turn it inside out, add catnip and glue a piece of velcro on the part you didn't sew.
