This is the first shot in what will hopefully be a slightly different take on the Seven Deadly Sins. A good friend and I had been planning this shoot for months, and the details changed over time, but I'm really happy with the final result. I suppose there's a commentary on modern society in there, but the message was less important to us than the visual side of things. We knew we wanted to emulate the 'chiarroscurro' style lighting, made famous by artists such as Caravaggio, and that we wanted a cornucopia of modern food (which ended up just being a table filled with McDonalds!)

Yerk! I know a great photo when I wish I could do it too.
(very) minor thing is I find the shape on the wall just above his hand mildly distracting.

I actually agree with you Rod, I need to be more aware of that stuff. Thank you for pointing it out!

Awesome but you should have found a fatter model.

Thanks John! We considered it, but felt that it might be a bit heavy handed, or potentially offensive. Gluttony runs far deeper than just overeating.
