Meet my Dexter.
Dexter is a 3 year old brown tabby.  He is an amazing little kitty and very lovable.
When we got Dexter a few years back of course I wanted to take photographs of him.  With the photograph above he was sitting facing a warm southern exposure sun.  I metered off his face to let the back ground go black, creating a dramatic portrait. 
I had entered him in a photo calendar contest with our local veterinarian.  I honestly didn't expect to win, but Dexter won and got the front cover and grand prize! 
The photo above is my first attempt at using Topaz ReMask.  I have the 30 day trial which is giving me the opportunity to decide if I want it or not.  I've seen some great photography using this software so I was anxious to give it a try.  I can see flaws and I still need lots of practice, but for a first try not bad.  I used 2 Lil' Owls textures for the background.  2 Lil' Owls have some fantastic textures you should check them out.  I thinking I might have to get this software too.
Oh and Dexter's eyes are really that golden.
See ya next week!
