Happy Holidays!

David Williams Photography Cozy

f/1.8 | 1/4000 second | iso 100 | Canon 50mm f/1.2L USM
Strobe: Canon 580 EX II | Manual power @ 1/32 | 1/8″ grid | Above and camera left (a tad) of subject
Triggered: PW FlexTT5

I was cruising around some blogs I visit and realised I haven’t taken any “holiday” images. #gasp…best change that!

Same subject, just different props and lighting. I like both images for different reasons but have to say I prefer the first…what are your thoughts?

  1. I like the first one best. Your Dad is probably right about the poses, but it is the pose in the first one that makes it a better shot for me – it seems more ‘natural’ in the sense that if these were people, that angle of the cub looking up is better. KInd of a Madonna with (adoring) Cub shot 🙂

  2. The second one. The pose is unnatural though, these are polar bears, I don’t think they sit up like that (news flash, the Coke commercial is a cartoon). Black bears, grizzlies and pandas may sit up because they have trees to lean against. I think having them laying down beside each other would be more natural and polar bears normally have twins, so where is the second one? I am beginning to feel sad.
