Artist's Description

This is OJ. Alas, no longer with us as he passed away very young. Here his eyes were just changeing color and I thought I’d try to get a pose out of him. Trouble was keeping him awake long enough to get a shot. Seconds after taking this, he slumped down into the jar, deep in little kitty dreamland. It wasn’t even easy getting him out !

I did this on film… Fuji Reala 100 ISO… with a homemade softbox which was my first venture into `studio’ flash. As a result, there were reflections all over the gass and especially on the neck of the jar which totally hid OJ`s fur. So I scanned the neg and cloned over the reflections with the few bits of fur that were visible through the glass in PS6. I aslo took advantage of Photoshop to adjust colors and levels till I was OK with his contrast against the background. It was pretty much my first delve into Photoshop and I learned lots about cloning, selecting, feathering and so much else through this… so not only does the nostalgia pertain to the subject, but to the processing as well.

Please have a look at Karina’s lovely translation in pastels :-))
