When I'm home, I try to take pictures of the cats around 2pm.
That's when I get soft and pretty day light through the blinds at home.
It's perfect to photograph something soft and fluffy.
I used my Canon 5D Mark2 with 50mm F1.2L lens for these shots below.
1/200 Sec, F2.8~3.2, ISO 1000, 5300K.
If you use a digi compact camera, you can make it 2/3 ~ 1stop overexposed and you'll get this very bright creamy effect.
