Title: Reminder...and looking for some inspiration!
Post by: Codysmom on May 18, 2019, 02:01:54 pm
I know it's rather early, but as all you folk in the northern hemisphere are experiencing longer sunnier days now, for those who are interested in submitting photos for the forum calender please make use of the 'light' to take photos of your fur babies.

I will put up a post a bit later in the year for the calendar submissions but in the meantime please start snapping away. ;)


I am also looking for some inpiration for the 2020 calendar, I've been playing around a lot and have a couple of samples below, however some of them I know are rather extreme and I don't think will appeal to everyone, LOL!   
Perhaps you could have a look and give me a couple of ideas...

#1 - Very little editing done on this one, only removed the chair legs behind Fozzy

#1b - ....same pic, just added some clouds and filters!

#2 - Original pic of my moggy girl, Mittens with slight editing to remove the outside edges of the box she was in.

#2b - same pic as above but with special effects and filters added.

That would be great Dawn! Any inspiration on a theme? Just looking for ideas and playing around right now...hope something will come to me soon. When I have a 'theme' in mind then the editing goes so much quicker. :)

That would be great Rebecca. Your hooligans are such gorgeous subjects I'm hoping they'll be cooperative for you so  you can get some great shots. xo

Hope you've been able to get start getting some pics of your fur babies. I know it's still early, but there's still enough time for all those of you in the northern hemisphere to make use of the longer days and better natural light.
I hope to put up a post for the 2020 calendar by the beginning of August or so. Looking forward to see what you manage to get. :)

Thank you for the reminder
with Skye, I have been so busy (needy puppy lol) I have been lucky to fit in cuddles for the kitty let alone take photos.
Rain forecast for the weekend but will try once the sun come out again

Well at least on the bright side you should be able to get loads of pics of Skye :D

Hope the kitties will be very cooperative when you do have the time, you have such a beautiful bunch and it'll be lovely to show them off at their best. xo
