Our instructor challenged us to create a photo story using three props. The previous assignment was to create an ad campaign titled Put A Face On.... (Ad or Concept Product).
By combing both concepts, I believe a stronger story was told with the baseball and mitt, and player.

We were also encouraged to use an odd number of items in the photo to make the contents of the photograph more appealing to the audience viewer. I ignored the football necklace as my model was attached to the item.

I love this. I think it pulls one in and tries to whisper a story that one can't quite hear. Good job!

This is probably my favorite of all the pictures you have in regards to that assignment. The composition, colors, and quality are so much better in this photo. The others, from what I can tell, probably lost some quality while being edited and it kinda suprised me that this photo didn't get into the magazine, as opposed to the others.

Another great photograph that can also be used in the American Cancer Society's "Put A Face On Cancer" poster campaign to raise money for Cancer research!!!
