/I need a photo:


It would be a close up of a 6-7 yr old boy or girl crying on parent's shoulder. The child's face would need to be very expressive and pressed down against the parent's shoulder. This is for the cover of a book, so the photo needs to convey the emotion of the child and the clear embrace of the parent. It would be close up, but not cutting off any of the child's head.


I picture the child looking off to the side of the camera and not at it.


I hope this is clear enough. I know it's a difficult request, but I'm hoping to get this shot.


Thank you very much if you decide to take this on. I would need it within the next couple of weeks.


Let me know if you have any questions.


Thanks you!

I am offering $50 to whoever Nails it with a photo shoot.

hi there - somehow you ended up with two identical posts so I'll delete the other one.

what ethnicity of child/parent?
is the book vertical? I initially think of a regular novel with "book cover".

thanks for providing such a detailed brief

It would be a 6x9 book. I invision the image of the face/shoulder being the lower half of the book with a LIGHT background in the upper part of the photo where the title would be placed. Either that, or a dark background, maybe something rich, but not midtones.


It is a nonfiction, and more than anything, what will sell this book as I see it, will be the emotion of the child being comforted.


Let me know if you have more questions.


Thanks!

This might fit the bill - even though not exact

tirc83, thanks for showing me the photo. It is a nice photo but isn't quite the look I'm after. I'm being picky, but I need to be. The only part of the parent that I want to show is the shoulder, as if we were looking at the back of the parent who is facing away with the child facing us, on the shoulder being comforted.


So, the only part of the parent that would appear would be the neck and back of parent's shoulder.


I'm thinking this may not happen here because of how specific I am being, but I still have hope.


Thanks!

I thought of this one....too much parent from your description.

I did a quick search for child + crying and found these two. You could possibly crop them to your needs.

Thanks for the effort. I have combed through istock and seen these also but they don't match. The reason I'm asking for a photo is because istock doesn't have it yet. When you read my description, you'll see that these don't match. Again, I know I'm being super picky, but I'm looking for someone who is willing to read the description and shoot it the way I describe it.


Don't look through istock because I have looked at every single shot and havent' found THE ONE.


Thanks again for your attention! If someone is willing to do a photo shoot, please contact me so I can just confirm that you shoot it correctly.


I will offer $50 beyond purchasing the photo for someone to nail it.

I know what you're goin for, but how old do you envision the child being? The mother? Is this a teenage mother, a middle age? Would you want the shot outdoors, indoors, what kind of mood are you looking for, what kind of clothes. Do you want as tight as shot as possible shooting wide open to isolate the child in the arms of the mother. Alot goes into this, and for $50 I dunno if its worth it, just being reasonable here. I dont just throw things together and take a shot, if you want a shot I could get it to you but its goin to take time, release forms signed, and you will get what you pay for. 50$ isnt goin to get you much of anything quality wise and since you say this is could be driving sales of your book, I would be upping the budget so some of the more serious guys on here might wanna take the project on.
