when i one day get a kitty, i will become a full time kitty photographer... so what's the soft spot? is the kitty mine (i admit!), or is the kitty his soft spot, OR is the guy with the gas mask the kitty's soft spot, he keeps him around just for the heck of it, to have someone pet him... or maybe this photo is your soft spot? ;)

i went to Toronto to take this shot. i admit my #1 subject was the person in the background, but somehow it almost turned into a kitty photo... seriously tho, Arc Dym, the guy, was awesome in helping me out with this shot. i only had one flash and ended up using the other side of a Cure poster as a reflector... his props, the jacket and gasmask, were pretty cool for the shoot as was the chair which is originally from a mental institution. Duke then again, the cat, was not a very willing model and making him stay still and look at the camera was tough. i was lucky to get this shot.

some of you won't like the fact that i focused on the kitty but i think his pose kinda demanded it :D

models: Arc Dym & Duke

god damn. This is really nice. I love the contrast between the pure, cute, "good" cat and the exciting "dark side" beneath the rubber... pulsing with sexuality.
Really nice.

I don't think this picture would have worked as well if you hadn't focused on the cat actually.

The portrait is great, I agree the focus of the cat was demanded. I would have loved to see the focus switch between the two though, since master has much presence. =)

this shot is beautiful!! i'd like to think that he's the cat's soft spot. ive always liked the stare of a cat, i think i might get one someday except for the fact that i think i'm really more of a dog person ANYWAY beautiful shot and the cats eyes are so open and focused i love the white against the black and LOL cure poster, um. . . . mental institution awesome :) i think that covered it all. . . . . i really like the cat though. :)

Wow, the gas mask and the mental hospital chair, and even the kitty fits well with the theme of one of my fav. bands Kaizers Orchestra!
I love that eye in the gas mask, though the lack of a filter annoys me.. Feels a little amputated >_<
