A couple of weeks ago I found a couple of chickens deposited in my garden. I have no idea who put them there but they are pretty cute so I decided to keep them. I’ve also been working on perfecting my portable studio and decided the chicken coop was the perfect place to test it out – watching my footing of course! I believe the white bird is a Silkie rooster and the speckled bird is a Plymouth Barred Rock hen. We’ve already had a few fried eggs so far 🙂
The light set up was a simple three light setup, two in the front with a diffuser and one pointed at the white background. How I got them in the right spot was a grape stuck to the end of my tripod leg that I waved around as a pointer!
Ok here is the secret, I have a few photos just approved by Shutterstock. Ok it’s not that big a secret but I thought I would share anyway! 🙂

I was playing around with my cat last weekend and I couldn’t help but snag a couple more shopping bags for just this purpose. I laid the shopping bag down, set up my flashes and sure enough Mr. Morris walked right in 🙂
I recently took this shot of our cat and felt I needed to do something with it! Here is a little Catmas Christmas card! If you interested in purchasing this image it was recently accepted to shutterstock.
