Wisdom has built her house,
she has set up her seven columns;
she has dressed her meat, mixed her wine,
yes, she has spread her table.
She has sent out her maidens; she calls
from the heights out over the city:
"Let whoever is simple turn in here;
To the one who lacks understanding, she says,
Come, eat of my food,
and drink of the wine I have mixed!
Forsake foolishness that you may live;
advance in the way of understanding."
An afternoon of designing a table setting in Renaissance style was a task bigger than I first anticipated. Ensuring the symbolic pieces came together and fitted with the surroundings and colour palette I had planned. With my trusty model, who of course did everything I asked of her, a number of times, was so patient and obliging. We had to get the composition down packed and synced with the smoke and the pose, just as well we are both patient for the perfect shot :)
We set this one up in my studio alongside the big window, I wanted it to be soft natural window light for this image, we didn't have much time to line it all up as the light was shifting quickly and we had another shot to wrap up after this one.
The Feast has so many meanings to me, it challenges the way I think about the many journeys I have made and those I need to make, the people I have met and the impact they have had, good and bad.
