    I'm not much into cat pics, but this is very nice. You couldn't ask for a better "posed" portrait shot!

    This is a great shot. Is the desk the orange color? That color makes a wonderful contrast to the gray.

    Actually the basement wall is painted orange like that.

    Picture this, she's on the desk with the wall behind her. The strobe is set up on a light stand to the left of the desk facing straight up. On the strobe is a 36" softbox. The soft box's white surface is literally inches from the top of her ear (in fact I cropped that image because where the ear is cut off you can see the soft box cover).

    The edge of the softbox is flush against the wall, thus that black drop-off you see near the top.
