Set up your tent and lights in preparation for a jewelry shoot. Cat will immediately appear and offer to assist.

  2. I can verify that this is absolutely true. (Dontcha love taking a bunch of pics only to discover cat hair visible in the background that your macro setting picked up but your naked eye didn't?

  3. That's so cute...and so true! I have to shut my cats out of my studio when I do any jewelry photography! Will share this post on Facebook and Twitter!

  4. I see your kitty has the same bad habit as mine. I'd like to know, how do they sit on a pile of wires and not get a wire up their you know what?

  5. Wondering about your tent, where did you get it, what brand is it, what did it cost, is it easy to use? Does it come with good instructions and lights or do you have to get them separately etc.? Basically I would just like to know anything about your set-up that would help any artist or crafter taking pictures of their products.

  6. I would love to know about your tent and light set-up anything about it at all that would help an artist or crafter taking pictures of their handcrafted merchandise. What brand is the tent, where did you get it, does it come with lights and easy instructions, etc.?

  7. I have a twelve year old Basenji who fits perfectly in my light tent, so I sympathize with this in every possible way!

  10. Oh how cute. Cats do have a way of always being on top or inside whatever you sit on the floor.

  11. Oh, I love this!! Typical cat. Mine wouldn't roll over to sleep but hunt for any stray bits of thread hanging down to attack. And if there weren't any, she'd go for imaginary threads. :-)
