    I assume they wanted a white backdrop so that some other background could be inserted in the future? The image as-is looks fine. (The cat looks like a Maine Coon)

    No, just a white studio backdrop.

    Haha I should have. ;)
    Actually I widened the shot on purpose. It was tighter but I thought it looked a little boring so I added some space on the sides. But of course, that's something I easily could change if I or they wanted.. :)

    Nothing really special, a 150 cm octabox on my right side and some small flashes here and there to blow out the background! :)

    Well hmm.. First of all it's not a real studio at all. It's just a roll of white paper that we bought for like 10$. We put 4 slices of paper together, some tape and voila. To get a white background you need plenty of light on it. I have cheated a little here, the whole background wasn't white, but with a little photoshop.. ;) It's easier if you experiment yourself rather than having someone trying to explain it hehe. Trial and error!

    I have done some skin retouching and also added some new highlights here and there (arms, legs and hair). Maybe 4-5 hours total.

    Great image!! Beautiful women, great posing, and killer cat! If I was really looking for something wrong I would say, the girl in the back camera right, her left arm from the elbow to the hand looks a little darker than it should be.

    Great work. But back-right girl is too drowned out.
