My boys were playing with their Guinea pigs and kittens on the living room floor. The window was letting in a nice stream of light, reflecting onto their faces from the red towel they had under the animals.

I grabbed my camera.

No stellar results, but interesting shadows on the kids’ faces. With some experimenting, I think this light with the colored reflection could equal some fun results.

Maybe I’ll try it again another day.

And for you animal lovers out there, here’s a bit of news – Bailey, the Guinea pig on the left had three babies on Saturday. One black and white, and two tri-colored. They are so adorable! Born with fur, eyes open and little squeaky personalities. They are all spoken for and will be going to good new homes when they are old enough to leave mama.

The other Guinea pig, Penny is expecting any day now. I’m sure some baby Guinea pig photos will show up here one day soon!

Isn’t it cute how Penny and Bailey seem to be kissing in this shot?

  1. The guinea pigs are indeed cute, and so are the kids. Fun with the kitten in the mix, too. The light is really beautiful. In itself it’s very harsh, but because the kids’ heads were so close to the floor (or rug?) it functions as a big reflector. Very nicely done.
