Distracted Driving Portrait

    This portrait literally kept me up at night.  The night before I was trying to think of a way to combine the key elements of the wrecked car with the cell phone.  I decided to get up high to see the wreck and used a wide angle lens to make the foreground larger in proportion to the car.  I ended up minimizing the cell phone, so that it was only visible enough to convey the idea that the cell phone was involved in the crash.  Brandi Dulin was good at looking regretful, it was the only expression that came naturally to her a few days after her near death experience.
