My New Home Studio

I have a loft in my house that's been a kitty playhouse for a while - but now it's home to my new portrait studio (with kitties). 

Yesterday we had our first official MONSTRINTHEDARK new studio session with Nicki, my nephew, who is celebrating his first birthday.

This guy was a real trooper. We fired off a little more than 600 shots and he only fell asleep once.

For this shoot we went with continuous lighting. Big open window to Nicky's left, a Lowell soft box on his right and a cool little $30 LED for an eye light that I picked up on Amazon.
