This short post relates to my [previous](http://www.mconnorsphotos.com/blog/working-a-location/) on working a location until you have an image you are happy with. Conversely, I suppose you could think of it as working an image concept until you’re satisfied (if ever) with a finished image. That is how I see this image below.
I was rummaging through some archives and came upon this image from last winter. I actually have mention of this same image in my notebook because I wasn’t happy with the results. I was aiming for a feeling of warmth. A feeling of being a child, having played outside in the cold all day and making your way home knowing that inside are you parents, hot chocolate, and a warm blanket.
I think I have brushed upon my intentions, but I want to redo a similar photo to try bring the kids and sled out more. When I took this nearly a year ago, I had just begun to play with off-camera flash. I was fumbling with settings and begging the kids to hold the pose; pleading with them to shiver just a little while longer while I tweaked this or that. I am by no means expert with flash a year later, but I have become more familiar with lighting that I should give this a go again. Provided I can talk the kids into it.
Are there any image concepts that you plan or want to give a to-over? Or are some of you more the take it, learn from it, and move on type?
