This didn't work as well as I had hoped, even after trying a lot of different ways of lighting the image, I could not achieve what I was hoping for, but this has inspired me to try again until I can get a result I am happy with. I have run out of time for this weeks challenge, so what ever I get as an improvement I will be doing just for me. The image is made up from 3 focus stacked images.
It seems a bit odd, but what might appear to be the most simple of images has been one of my hardest challenges.
My original plans were changed thanks to having my two great nephews around and able to provide their modelling skills for my image. The set up was easy, wait for it to start getting dark, light the fire and feed them marshmallows, their grandad was keen to get involved as well.
The photo was edited in Lightroom, some distractions removed in Photoshop and a frame added in Exposure X4
