Thanks all - it might be inside or out as there is a roof garden to utilise but depends on the weather!

If it's outside I might just try natural light like most of these

The practice I did earlier in the living room I just couldn't seem to balance the light around the face with or without reflector. Hopefully the location tomorrow will just yield the results with te techniques you all mentioned - but it couldn't seem to do it here so I panicked a bit:/

That's a good example Penel :)

you'll be fine Mat with a brolly and reflector, maybe need someone to hold it up incase its windy.

I'm off the Italy on Friday for my sisters wedding(baby better not come or I'm a deadman), BBQ Friday night, Wedding on Sat, weather looks good in Genoa region. My mothers on at me to bring a camera, so annoying as they have 2 photographers booked so I told her straight today, I'll bring a softbox, flash and a few lens for the Friday BBQ but I'm not ponsing around on the day as its not on, I still don't think she got it....."but we'd like a few photos" grrr thats why your hiring people!

But Ian you know if you do your's will turn out better than the hirelings ;)

Mat, if you are setting up before client arrives and the setup needs to work straight away - either get someone to sit/ stand in for you - or even put your hand where their face will be and adjust the reflector that way. If I'm shooting a dog / cat I use a soft toy (of the same colour if poss) in their place before they arrive so everything is ready.

Those shots from LFW are lovely though.

this blue and white whippet was absolutely stunning and so well behaved too. I had his paws up on a box (that helps to keep them still!) which also helps to lengthen the front of the body.

Couple more quickies - these shots were too far away really but managed a couple of the moment when the Kestrel descended on the Ternery pool at Rye Harbour. All hell broke out as they all lifted up off the islands. A couple of the Terns decided to chase it off lol

Just another two I did last night - again the eye isnt clearly showing which is a bummer but there you go lol

Some great pictures especially like the second one with the kestrel captures the mood nicely

Sounds like fun, makes it hard to enjoy a wedding if you are concentrating on pictures all day. Fingers crossed with the baby and you having a good weekend.

Morning all, Stanley came home yesterday. As soon as the cage was open he disappeared under the sofa for an hour or so. He soon came out though, if a little cautiously at first and explored his new home. He loves our carpet as it is quite coarse so uses it for scratching, ignoring completely the scratching post we got for him. He had a couple of goes at scratching the sofa...any tips on how to gently dissuade him from doing that?

He also decided of course that he would sleep between me & Sally last night and then at about 4am he decided it was play time and started exploring! We're a bit tired this morning! As we left for work today he retreated back to under the sofa...hopefully he's out by now and having some brekkie. :)

Sounds like he is settling in just fine. Of course, what he really needs now is a friend to play with :)

One of our cats sleeps between us and 4am does seem to be the sort of time that they want to start playing. Just think of him as a fury alarm clock :)

As regards scratching the sofa, we had a bout of that which was sorted by putting the scratching post directly in front of the area of the sofa he was scratching. I think we may have sprayed some catnip on the post as well but not sure about that. I'm sure others may have some tips in that department.

Ah, catnip spray sounds like a good idea. Yes, he was full of beans at 4, I think he needed the loo though as I took him down to his litter tray and he made good use of it...seemed to settle him down for a bit. I also got him a kong kickeroo catnip toy which he seems to like wrestling with so that kept him amused while we tried to get back to sleep!
As for a friend to play with...Sally already has said we should have got 2...;)

Aww Stanley, welcome home :D I've never managed to persuade mine not to scratch the ends of the sofa I'm afraid. If I stop them when I'm there, they do it when I'm not there. Catnip doesn't last that long - they just go into a silly coma induced kind of rolling around mental play, it probably won't encourage him to scratch the post. You could cover the end of the sofa in double sided sticky tape for a while I've heard that helps. Bet he's having a great time today :lol::lol::lol:

Linda great shots of the Tern chasing the kestrel, really like the last Tern shot too.

morning all, just a quick pop in and say hi as I install the 20 and last version of CS6, Mike we stopped Smudge shredding the sofa by using tinfoil as cats dont like walking on it and also getting a scratch post that is flat which screws onto the wall which is quite small and out the way..

Ah, I will also try tinfoil, thanks :)

I got a decent scratching post so I might try rubbing it with catnip...he seeps happy to scratch at the carpet though so if the post continues being ignored I might try one of the flat scratcher on the floor.

I did think of that but when you have the choice of a heavy camera bag and/or need your hands I'd imagine the weight is irrelevant. That said though, I don't know if this would be padded enough for lenses and cameras.

Those jackets have been recommended on the Moneysavingexpert site so a lot of people must find them effective. When I went on overseas diving trips I used to stuff all my heavy stuff in my coat so the pockets were bulging. Usually it was OK but one time at Gatwick, they made me put my coat on the scales with my hold luggage and carry on!
