Critique Peanut Butter Sandwich Cookies - TAKE 2 (It helps to be clumsy!)

Sep 13, 2007
Northern VA suburb of Washington, DC
I had already made a photo of peanut butter sandwich cookies four months ago displayed at Critique - Peanut Butter Sandwich Cookies and I wanted to make this new photo in a completely different style.

I'm a total klutz and this time it finally worked in my favor: I had carefully stacked the cookies standing up on their edges and I was almost ready to release the shutter. That was when I accidentally bumped the tabletop, which created the far superior composition shown here.

The tabletop and background are a single sheet of translucent vellum. A small continuous-light lamp fitted with a diffusion sock was on left above the scene and another one was on the front right at the level of the tabletop.
