Caleb and his step dad... Technical: 1. Lighting: Daylight. 2. Composition: Vertical and horizontal creates linear crosses. 3. Rule of thirds crop creates diagonals with the eyes! Aesthetic: 4. 5. Excellent juxtaposition of body sizes. 6. Duplication of body position adds humorous mimicking. 7. Message: A man to look up to and emulate. 8. A really loving shot. Wonderful Step-father idea!
My favorite of the family photos; although I want everybody's head in. The background could be a nice view, such as trees or a lake, likely without a focal point. (Although it may need one, centered in the non-people section at the top of the photo.) I like the way it shows the family as bound together by the parent's love, rather than kids separated by parents or parents separated by kids.
