Last night before completely falling asleep I made a quick light setup and played with our cat, Lumi. She has her minutes of total craziness every day, when she tortures her toys (most of them sewed or made with natural feathers by my wife Van) to the maximum.

Her favourite at the moment is a bunch of soft swan feathers that we found on a beach. For her it seems to be a real bird sometimes.

So I set up my self-made silver umbrella (spray-painted the inside of a black 3-Euro-umbrella and fixed it on my old tripod with some pieces from the home-improvement market) to the right beside the camera, and my DIY-softbox to the left, a bit behind of where the action would take place.

Got some nice photos, though she didn’t go totally nuts and got tired quite fast. It was bed time for her, too…
