Do you know LL Bean guarantees their stuff for life?! I could return this backpack 20 years from now if it happened to rip ... or whatever. Thought you might like to know.

Hi Hemerlein,

I must admit. I didn't rate this photo too highly on first glance.
But looking at it for a second time, and stringing together what you've shot in your portfolio, I can "see" why it's been shot this way.

I must say, the technical of the photo is excellent. Ie. exposure, colors, contrast etc.

From the assumption that you're trying to show case a certain "fashion style", the photo would had lack a little "punch".

I see lively colors, Lauren's lunch and a school bag. The story should be around going to school, or along that line. What I'll do is to add a little "human touch" to the photo by introducing a child model (remember to get him/ her to sign the model release).

Have him pose beside the product (Bag), and flash a megawatt smile!

I love this because it does look like something straight out of the cata log. I love the lighting and clarity on all your items. Cute touch with the name on the bag too. Hope it ribbons!

I think it's a bit too dull/dark on the first part of the image mainly.

Perfect!! This looks like a photo that would be in their catalogue. I hope this wins a ribbon.

great back-to-school shot, but doesn't really say 'rugged' imho.

The pencils and leaves are a nice touch!

This is perfect for an LL Bean catalog. Exactly what I would expect from the pros

I love this one, good framing, good colors, good setup with the leaves, bag lunch, pencils and apple. Really evokes the feeling of going back to school in fall. Picnic table is a nice touch. Good inclusion of brand name.

great work. You covered all the bases here to make this a complete image right out of a magazine.
