Project 52 #10 String Quartet

Assignment 10 of Project 52 was to make a photograph for a CD cover and inside spread, for a string quartet playing Ravel. My major problem with this assignment was not having access to a string quartet, so  requiring me to think outside of the box somewhat. The first thing I did was listen to the piece of music which was somewhat sombre and melancholy. I then had to find a way to represent the mood and the idea of a string quartet. This is what I came up with:
The cover:

The inside

This was taken on my kitchen table. I just pulled the curtain across the table for the backdrop, and lit the candles with a couple of table lamps.
I was quite happy with the results.
