Model in woods, orange kitty in track suit
Here’s our first photo shoot of lady in tulle in the woods. My vision was to have her serenely holding an orange cat (to match the orange flowers). I put out an all call for anyone with an orange cat who could model for us. This lovely lady volunteered her cat saying he has a calm demeanor and could handle it. One the day of the shoot we had her arrive late so we had time to get the lights set up and model all set with minimal stress to the cat. Once we were ready the owner took brought her cat to the site in a kitty crate, pulled him gently out of it. We took a photo of him in her arms. I asked if she had a leash then BAM! the cat jumped out of her arms and took off like a shot! I didn’t see it but I’m sure he quickly ran to a phone booth and changed into his Superman cape or at least a track suit because he was fast!
We spent the next hour looking for him. Finally, a park maintenance guy saw him. He was captured and taken back home safe and sound. No modeling for that guy! We were all completely relieved that he is ok. Stephanie, our model, had blood running down her arms from him scratching her. We had her pose with her arm hidden to not show the bright red blood against the white tulle background. It was quite an adventure! Behind the scenes sometimes make for crazy stories. Thank goodness this one ended happily.
