Flickr contributor says ‘Any subject can be interesting’ (even his friend’s sphynx cat)

This picture started out as a simple, fun idea and ended with something I never thought was possible. The kitten is a friend’s. It’s a sphynx cat that I think is really cute. Many people find this breed ugly. Others like it. I’m part of the second group.

On a weekday night, we had some fun at my studio, testing light patterns, and trying to control that little not-so-furry thing that was moving around all the time. With its expressive face, its big eyes, I thought that it would do great stock photography. And I wasn’t wrong…

I’m inspired by light, natural or artificial. For me, many subjects can be interesting, as long as there is good light to make it shine.
