I’ve been pleased and humbled by the comments and email responses on previous Food Photography posts here and I’m delighted to share more of my work with you. Inspired by an image on Pinterest, I decided to do this shoot with yellow pepper and a fork. I was taken by the simplicity of the concept; minimalist with strong contrast, and the clarity of the message.
I’ll be honest and admit that I wasn’t prepared for how beautiful this Okro looked on camera. Zooming in close, my lenses picked up on those tiny delicate hairs on the okro pod, giving so much texture to this simple vegetable. I fell in love with the pentagon shape of the okra slices and the small white seeds. I wish I had a proper micro lens so I could really capture the intricate details of this beautiful vegetable.
I decided to attempt dark food photography after being inspired by a Pinterest blog. My first attempt was a disaster because I couldn’t get my camera settings right, the black cardboard came out looking blue and I didn’t know as many Adobe Light room tricks as I do now.
haven’t been posting twice weekly like I planned to because I’ve been more focused on my photography business. If you follow this blog, you’ll already know that I make stock images and sell on a number of platforms to earn extra cash to keep this blog up.
You know how you ĺook at someone you absolutely love and see all the good things you want to do to them? Yeah, just looking at these tomatoes I had that Halo moment. I could see future, bright with a salad and three different kinds of stew!
