stephanie  a. damilano     Did you use studio lighting, camera flash, or natural lighting?

Hi Stepanie,

For this shot, I rented a couple of studio monolights and set them up in a display home at a new construction site. The left light is a little brighter than I would have liked. Live and learn...

This a pleasing photo that tells a story. Although it is obviously staged, I like it!

I agree that the left light is a little bright.

Do you think it would have worked better to have the model looking at the person holding the tray for more reality?

I like it. Was it shot on Digital?

Thank you all for your comments and suggestions.

This was captured on film (slides), before I converted to digital.

That is a good idea to have her looking at the person. I would have liked it as a comparison shot but, alas, I did not think of that at the time.

However, even though this might make it look more realistic, it would diminish the "punch" of the image. But I see your point... having her looking into the camera causes an reaction in the viewer but may cause too much of a reaction.

It all depends on what the image would be used for. In a standard travel brochure, having her look at her friend who likely be more acceptable. This version, on the other hand, would be better for a more attention-grabbing "wow" advertising campaign.

Thanks again for your comments.
