La Chat

Model: Blythe Renay

This picture is inspired by a painting of a woman in a blue dress. I loved the play of light on the fabric, and went on a mission to find material that would look like that under lights. I found this beautiful material, and wrapped Blythe up in it. Cassiopeia, the chat in question, loves getting into my studio, since she is never allowed in it. and she loves interfering with shoots, but doesn’t love stilling for them. Most of the photos I have of her, she is trying to get away, or twisted into some strange position. We took about 30 shots, and 1 of them worked.
