Sad Hannah

This is my photo for the Triangle Strobist Summer project contest. The goal of the project was to try to replicate an image seen in a magazine or elsewhere. I am almost embarrassed to post this because it is such a poor imitation of the original. www.thesorcerer.org/images/SteveMcCurryAfghanGirl.jpg

The original is so powerful, I should have picked a less iconic image. Here is the story behind the original photo. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Afghan_Girl_(photo)

 

The lighting for my shot is a large softbox camera right with a reflector camera left.
