Thank you to all of the judges who took the time to vote in this contest and thanks to Larry, as always, for giving our community a platform to show our work. I am very appreciative to be voted the winner of this month’s contest.

This image was kind of an extra shot, but one I envisioned from the moment I first walked through the home. I just had to hope that the clouds wouldn’t obscure the Tetons at sunset as they often do this time of year. The opened double doors aligned perfectly with the fire pit and the Tetons so I pushed the dining table in the foreground, staged it with the homeowner’s dishes, some of the food in the fridge and what remained of the props that we brought. I placed one strobe outside to light the patio chairs and one strobe, on fairly high power with a diffused beauty dish, camera right to light the foreground. I did some minor compositing with a few ambient layers on top.
