Luckily, this was expert editing, since my dining room isn't that type of paint, there's a lot of junk around the edges of the white backdrop, and there's only 2 green lights. :)

But there is one purple light!!! That's the one that I left off camera, using it to light the lights. :D

I finally sprung for lighting. Two alienbee400s, on AB800, and some modifiers. (only one of the big umbrella).

thanks for the comments, I was hoping that some would enjoy it, even though I still need help at photoshop. This would be simple for some, but took me forever!! Luckily, when I put Cinders on the chair, she actually stayed. I knew Mo wouldn't be an option. I put him in the stool, and he immediately hopped down. I actually thought it might be more interesting that way, but I went with Cinders, instead. My son posing for this? Ha! Right! :)

Nicely done. Santa can come over to my place and bestow your wishes on me too. Love the colour harmony - especially the echo of the green in the cat's eyes.

Green with envy…looks like a pretty awesome set , i'll take the full set too! Cats are so smart.. this was probably the first shot eh? I really like this, it is very well done. That would absolutely be my colour choice for Alien bees too! 10 from me I love it.
