The background goes something like this...my mother-in-law wanted some photos of our babies (i.e., our fur babies). My wife went out and found a frame with 3 4x6 slots in a portrait format, which was perfect as we have 3 cats. So now I had 2 options, 1) scour my Lightroom catalog for existing photos, or 2) shoot new photos.
I did take a look through Lightroom, but I didn't see anything in a portrait format that had any consistency between the three; all of the backgrounds were different and I shot a lot of them in landscape orientation. So it was option 2...shoot new photos!
Stay tuned for Part 2 - "The Shoot & The Gear," where I'll review the lighting set-up among others things.
