Explanation

Recycle the clue carefully into the blank. Choices (B) and (D) can be eliminated; they give synonymous meanings, but nothing in the sentence supports the idea that the photographer was rushed. Neither subversively, which means rebelliously, nor hysterically, which means characterized by irrationality due to uncontrollable emotion, is supported by the sentence, so eliminate choices (C) and (F). Both meticulously and fastidiously can mean carefully, so choices (A) and (E) give you appropriate, equivalent sentences.

Hence options A and E are correct!
