Here comes the sun …….
I had a good day today ! Although still in a funk, I sent my sorry a** to the grocery store. I came home with DONUTS, and to my delight, I really like the images.
Today was overcast, with a touch of rain. This is my favorite lighting to shoot in … the colors are exquisite. ( I’ve used that adjective once before in my life, it was dinner in St.Louis. I was 15 ) Overcast lighting lends an even tone, and the shadows are soft. I think this shot below is my personnel best, I can’t find anything to moan about.
The only problem with this next image, the camera doesn’t lie. The camera can be brutally honest, as most of us know first hand. Although I held the donuts horizontal on my walk home, they still managed to make a mess of themselves. See ?
The donuts are placed on a mirror, and a wooden flag is leaning against the railing in the background. My DOF is just shallow enough that you get a hint. I like it.
…. these donuts are on sitting on a wooden cutting board, with a sheer curtain shielding the flag and railing. I like this one too !
…. and in this shot, ‘ pay no attention to the railing behind the curtain’. Or do, I like it again.
Well, I didn’t stop there. Let me show you one more. This was my husbands lunch today. I have learned that greasy, oily, shiny foods are tough to get a good image. Today I remembered, but …. I like it.
This is a lettuce sandwich with ham, turkey, hard salami, some horseradish with mayo , and a slice of provolone. The bread is to die for. Don’t forget to click on the images.
