Shoot and Edit: Week 3 - Good Night SOOC - Ramblings and Photos

Shoot and Edit: Week 3 – Good Night SOOC
Welcome to the third week of Shoot and Edit: Part 1

Click HERE for all the details and upcoming prompts/themes.  

You can also click on the button below for tips on becoming a “Word Verification Free” blog.

Just Say No - Word Verification
This week our theme or prompt is to show us one shot SOOC that says “Good Night” to you (this is just a suggestion, you can show us any SOOC shot).  You have until Wednesday each week to link your SOOC shot up on Jill’s blog. On Thursday, you can link up your edits with ME after following some of my tips on how to edit your shots (or just post your edit on Thursday and you can pick up my tips for next week).

One of my favorite things about the evening is snuggling with Kitty Paw on the couch. She loves laying on a blanket…and with the introduction of a very soft animal print blanket, she loves to lay as close as possible to us when we’re chilling out at night. On Friday night, I was cleaning my equipment while sitting on the couch. She was curled up beside me. She looked so sweet, I had to take a picture. Granted, I could have gone a lot wider with my aperture, but that’s alright. Here is my SOOC shot:

Wait…what is this…a second shot? The SOOC shot below is actually courtesy of Jill. Jill and I were chatting the other day, and I mentioned that we may see a few bathtub photos this week (maybe I’m wrong, but I’m convinced I’ll see at least one)…and that it might be helpful to have one editing example to share. Bathtub photos can be difficult, but I’ve got some fairly simple tricks up my sleeve to help you with white balance. Stay tuned!

Next week’s theme is “RED.” With that said, be sure to check out other “Good Night” SOOC shots at:

Good to Wow

By the way, today is my first day posting as a Mortal Muse. Stop by and say hello!

    Cute shot of Kitty, can’t wait to see how you are going to edit it!

    Kitty Paw is so lovely with those great green eyes. Can’t wait to see the final edit!

    awww that is such a precious shot of Kitty Paw! looking forward to both edits :-)

    hugs and blessings today!

    She is so sweet!! Can’t wait to see your edit of her!

    As I told Jill in my comment to her…apparently I didn’t read the instructions well as I have been posting series of pictures rather than just one. I think it would be very difficult to just do one. I will try my very hardest next week! ;)

    You’re so lucky you have such a cuddly kitty. The two of mine just run off and do their own thing.

    Look forward to seeing your editing on this one.


    Awww, Kitty Paw’s sweet little face must be such a joy to see right before going to bed. That shot of her is particularly adorable, and I can’t wait to see what you do with it this week!

    Your kitty reminds me of my angel kitty, named Dottie. Can’t wait to see what you do with it.

    I’m SUPER excited. I have my own, very first Canon Rebel coming in the mail and I can’t wait to start shooting away. I have you as inspiration!

    Kitty Paw is so adorable :)
    Can’t wait to see the edit!

    So very sweet. Have an awesome day.

    So true about the bathroom shots! Kitty Paw is just too cute, one of my cats is loving like that, the other one is a “typical” cat only wants attention when she wants it and can be MEAN as a snake!

    A bath time edit … awesome! I was just telling my hubby that I needed to take some bath time shots of the boys last night. I can’t wait to see and try out your tutorial using Elements.

    Perfect timing! I was planning on posting a bedtime photo of Sammy tomorrow, so I’ll be sure to link up!

    Love Kitty Paw! My Moose is a cuddle bunny too. I might have to use him for this challenge. I can’t wait to see the edit!

    Oh such a sweet kitty. Always makes me thing just what are they thinking to get in to next. Excited to see your edit. Would look great as a B&W.

    I love Kitty Paw. I will have to find a good night shot to take and edit.

    I’m curious what you will do to your shots! :-)

    Love your shot of Kitty Paw! Can’t wait to see your edits!

    Aww I love cat cuddles!

    I love that photo of Kitty
    Paw. Can’t wait to see your edit.

    aww love this shot of Kitty Paw! so cute…can’t wait to see the edit! And I have to say, my sibs are pretty cute too. ;o)

    you have one cute kitty!!!! Can’t wait to see your edit!!!

    Kitty Paw is so freaking adorable. Our cats are pregtastic now, so I am excited for some more cute kittens to play with.

    Oh, I just want to reach into the screen and snuggle and cuddle with Kitty Paw! Wow — love her eyes — so piercing!

    Looking forward to your edits!

    Kitty Paw looks so sweet! I just want to snug her. Looking forward to Thursday.

    Great photo. I’m looking forward to your next edit post!

    Okay, so just now making my rounds…. sad. REALLY looking forward to the white balance tips. I think your shot is going to be SO cute when you finish. can’t wait to see!

    How did I NOT comment on this, I know I came & looked at it, so sorry Ms. Ash!!! Can’t wait to see what you do with Miss Kitty Paw, such a pretty kitty :) And as always thanks for your inspiration!!!!

    Oh how I love this cat shot- So reminds me of my Butler- with the little black beard :)
