Shoot and Edit Week 25 – Sunrise…I mean, Kitty Paw SOOC
Welcome to the 25th week of Shoot and Edit: Part 1. Click HERE for all the details and upcoming prompts/themes and past tutorials.

This week our theme or prompt is “Sunrise” (this is just a suggestion, you can show us any SOOC shot…much like I did this week). 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).
As you can see, I did not manage to capture a SOOC sunrise photo. During the work-week, I’m doing well if I can get up and to the office on time…during the weekend, I value all the sleep I can get. There’s a chance that I’ll be able to capture sunrise at some point this week, but for now, I’ll just share a recent shot of Kitty Paw during a play session. Here’s my SOOC:

Kitty Paw EXIF

For what I’m lacking in adhering to the weekly themes, I hope I’ll be able to make up during my tutorial this week. I’ve recently been doing some studying on “the dreaded red channel.” If you’ve ever been told that you completely blew your highlights/red channel, etc then you’ll want to pay attention (assuming I am able to digest it into something understandable). Next week’s theme is “Red, White and Blue.” 

With that said, be sure to check out other “Sunrise” SOOC shots at:

    Awww, Kitty Paw pictures always make my day. I love the burst of color in the background from the ribbon. My cat Pumpkin has an affinity with ribbon too – it’s like her catnip. Happy Monday!

    Awww…such a green-eyed beauty!

    excited for your red channel tutorial!

    Well, she’s as pretty as a sunset! ;)

    Lovely shot can`t wait to see the edit.

    What a look :) Love the pop of color with the ribbon, and the whiskers are great!

    This is a fantastic photo–I totally understand not capturing the sunrise. I love the creamy, ribbon bokeh!

    I have never even heard the term blown out your reds, but I think I have a few pictures that that phrase would explain so I look forward to learning more…as always!

    Love this shot of Kitty Paw.

    Aww! Cute photo. I didn’t get a sunrise either. :)

    I kinda like that you broke the rules :P I usually see the sunrise from the bus on my ride into work…and that’s about it. Miss Paw is an adorable alternative!

    This is a great shot.

    Sunrises are way overrated. Lol.

    Wow – look at those eyes!

    I love her photos- she just photographs so well!

    I can’t wait to read Thursday’s post. I am always looking for ways to edit better! :) Now if I can remember everything I learn & put it to use.

    Just stumbled on your blog! Love it so far and am following you!

    I wish there was some way for me to get you this song it is so hilarious and my kids think it’s the best ever. I’ve never had a cat but think this song is great, give it a listen sometime and let me know what you think. It’s in itunes and called Kitty Fight Song by Joe McDermott in the Children’s music genre. Have a great day!

    It’s about time–I was going into Kitty Paw withdrawal!

    This is a really, really good SOOC shot!
    Oh I love the new header. Normally I read you on my google reader and would have never known, but I had to comment on the lovely shot. Great job.

    Love the new design! Beautiful header.

    I like the new look: very classy and pretty. :0

    And wait, isn’t Kitty Paw your “sunshine”?? So couldn’t she also be your sunrise??? :) lol.

    Looking forward to the red channel tutorial. I was trying to mess w/ mine for this week (great minds think alike) and it didn’t really do what I wanted… so maybe I didn’t know what I wanted! ha!

    Aww Kitty Paw is the cutest thing! :)

    Love your blog header! Great pic of Kitty Paw. Looking forward to what you do with it!

    Don’t blame you for not catching the sunrise! I can relate – it’s summer and I’m not up before then. lol. Also, love your new header!

    That is great, he looks fake

    I just have a feeling that Kitty Paw has a LOT of personality. Great capture.

    I just love Kitty Paw…..too darn cute. Have a great day!!!

    WOWZA with the new blog look – oh MY! So beautiful, professional, so CLEAN to look at. LOVE the color on the sides!

    Sunrise, I mean Kitty Paw – LOL! That was pretty funny! What a great pic – love the color in the background.

    You’re such a sweetie with your comment on my blog today. Thanks! You made me feel awesome! So I guess 10 on tuesday stays. OK, off to fix my post from yesterday. I think I wrote “lightENing” like 9 million times. Isn’t “lightening” when the baby’s head drops during childbirth or something like that?! Sheesh Karli! LOL! :-)
