I recently found some photo lights on Craig's List for CHEAP (yay!) and set them up the other night to try and learn a little about lighting. I was all set for a peaceful evening, exploring the nuances of light and shadow.

I was experimenting with a shell, but realized too late that I should have left the lights up for a couple of days so the cats could become more familiar with them. The cats would NOT stay off the dining room table where I was working (thank God for Varythane!) They were too curious about the lights, the shell, my camera, and of course what the other one was doing. Before I knew it Smokey came crashing down through the top screen of my light box, on top of the shell and Sam, who was busy exploring the shell inside. I figured Smokey thought it was a stiff box and would support him, but when he did it a second time I knew better. A fight erupted and eventually this was my picture for the evening.

Need I say more?
