The Four of Coins is a miserly card- whether that is miserliness out of greed, or penny-pinching out of necessity, it denotes a clinging to one’s money and resources (that is not always a healthy thing).

We hit upon the idea of accounting fairly early- it was something we had considered for the Two of Coins, but ultimately rejected in favor of the more abstract “weighing”- but for this one, the idea of Stephanie with a ledger and a couple of coins seemed like it would get that sense of bean counting across.

This was again one of the easier cards to shoot, both in theme and in practicality- both Stephanie and I have weathered the recession as young adults, and thus “concern about financial security” is a state of mind we can both slip into easily (if we ever even leave it in the first place).

For shooting, we aimed to give Stephanie more of a overtly business look; the suit combined with my antique secretary desk went a long way toward conveying a sense not of poverty, but of careful concern. Overall, I think these turned out quite well. My only complaint was that I wish the backdrop were more even. I may have to go through and re-edit down the road.
