I felt cover story was a much more exciting sounding title than the other title I was considering: Mocking Me. LOL!!!
When I was commissioned by Phoenix Magazine to do some food photography for them the art director mentioned it was possible the images could end up as a cover story. He sent me a template of the cover so I could get a better idea how I might want to compose my images. These were not the kind of shoots where I had the camera tethered to the computer. I was just eyeballing it off the back of my camera. When I got home I made these muck ups. I think I did pretty good. You can see where some of my food images ended up in my editorial photography section.
