Taken inside a social hall during a festive Italian cooking party. To make the realism of this mask in relation to it's size as opposed to actual surroundings from the reflection in the background.
Subject of photo
Composition & Perspective
Color & Lighting
Depth of field
Subject is well lit, and very prominent in the image.
Great composition, but slightly off kilter - the mirror is not straight with the top of the frame.
The subject is in focus.
I like the contrast and use of the red around the subject, it is well lit and stands out nicely from the background.
The mask is in focus all over, good use of depth of field.
Hi Ronnie, I really like this image over all. Great use of light, composition and contrast.
How to improve your photo
I find the reflection of you in the mirror distracting. try using a longer lens, so you can zoom in to get your shot, and let the light fall off so your reflection isn't so prominent.
Pay attention to your edges - you can go in using photoshop and crop the top to level the mirror and the frame.
The only other thing I find distracting are the light reflections on the left side of the mirror, I'd like to see them gone, or on both sides, to balance out the image. Also, try tucking or camouflaging the tag, it distracts from the overall image.
