Free Fella by Shadowelve Free Fella by Shadowelve

Yay ^^ I SOOOO wanted to participate in this year's 1st of April project... First because I really love cats and second, because I want to have this special cat badge on my profile page :giggle: But the way to get here was pretty hard. You wanna read the kinda strange story of this picture? Go on...

I searched for around three to four hours (while I tried to answer some dA messages finally ^^;) in many many many many many old folders with photography (you really can't imagine HOW many -.-" With so many bad pictures actually xD). Finally I had to accept: I didn't take a single photo of a cat with one of my digital cameras the last years... :faint: (How comes? I have no idea... No models around I guess haha).
But giving up wasn't an option :ninja: So I used my first free day for weeks now to search through old boxes with printed photos I took with manual cameras when I was 10-14 years old (I guess... I think I got my first digital camera when I was 15... But I can't remember it exactly, sorry ^^). There are so so many printed photos, mostly from holidays, but finally I found this old, very creepy looking cat picture (no depth, odd proportions, strange orange colors, too much background, no real crop... you can imagine my horror :giggle:). But I took it, ran to the WDR (a german media enterprise I am working for at the moment - some of you may remember me talking about it on some of my recent photos... Oh and yeah, they really work on sundays - thank God ^^). So I could use the high resolution super duper whatever great scanner to digitize the photo and send it to my e-mail...
Back at home I sat down and tried to crop and turn, sharp and blur, adjust colors, etc etc etc to make this look like art and not like a cheap photo everyone runs away from haha :D I am not sure whether it isn't overdone now, but I have a cat picture for the project wuhuuuuu! Not the greatest one or the most original one, but I put really much work into it haha... And it is not supposed to be perfect, it just shall help to FREE FELLA WUHUUU!

And now after my sunday horror story: Go go and upload your own cat photos... :D We want our Fella back, dont't we? :D

About what the kitty thinks: "Hmmm...should I catch the mouse or should I go straight to my master, he will give me some food maybe?! But the mouse looks very tasty - Yummy! Ahhhh...damn conflict." :X Something like that maybe ... She's damn focused. :D

This was taken with a camera with film? Seriously? You call this bad? THIS IS NOT A BAD PICTURE! It's brilliant!

Shadowelve Featured By Owner Apr 1, 2012  Hobbyist Photographer
Yes, seriously... :D But it took me ages of post processing, so I feel it is almost a photomanip or digital work... The original one was soooo bad xD

Thank you :hug:
