I completed another photograph, for this entry I wanted to talk about the compositional inspiration.
The composition is based on a Renaissance painting, the Visitation of Mary to her cousin Elizabeth. I used the painting as inspiration to construct the photographic elements.
Everyone waiting for me to load my camera
Visitation of Mary to her cousin Elizabeth
The setup for the shot
This photograph is based on an event that happened two summers ago, a father and his son were crossing the street when a semi came barreling down Ashland Ave and hit and killed them both. The photograph is of the mother's reaction as she came looking for her son and husband.
