Once again, I photographed my old silver-plated forks. They have so much wear & character & I love all the different patterns. I used a child's fork for the little girl & I trimmed down shortened & painted a plastic fork to make the baby boy. I stood them in styro-foam and used a twist tie to make arms for the mom fork to hold her new baby bundle which is wrapped in craft foam. Leaning the mom fork toward the dad fork seemed to give emotion to the image. Light painted w/ an LED flashlight in total darkness was my only light source & required trial & error to achieve just the right amount of drama. It's corny I know, but I rather like it :) F 5.6 1.30 iso 100 @ 56mm 18-135mm Canon lens
