Making the most of each picture is difficult, especially when there are so many moving pieces. Getting the subject to sit, pose, relax and then place the food perfectly can be a seriously difficult procedure. In this scene I had a difficult time with lighting. No artificial lights, studio lights or flashes were used to take this pose. Being a small company has its challenges. The main being building up equipment for an adequate photo shoot.
I had several photographers better than my self give me so good critique on the photo, I would welcome yours.
My favorites of this scene really hinge around the subject. Her pose and face are calm and reassuring, the fireplace mellows the scene. My dislikes: I could have done a better job with the food arrangement.
I welcome your thoughts.
