Can food without color be inticing ?
Thats easy – NO ! however, there is much to be said about the simplicty of a colorless photo, a B&W.
Back in May, I met a new friend, Grant. We were visiting and I told him what was keeping me busy. Grant made a comment that B&W photo’s of food would be pretty cool. I dismissed the idea before the thought left his lips… food needs color! I am serious about this, what do you mean ??? I shook my head, as only I can ( imagine the face with the shake), and I altered the conversation. I never gave it a second thought, until today. My last two posts were consumed with three colors. Brown, my favorite, green and rrrrrred ! I started out writing to find orange as the color of the day, but something else evolved. So Grant, if you are out there in my “blogasphere”, let me know how they look.
While working on the images, I had to step away from LIGHTROOM several times. I was going crazy tweaking the blacks, raising the highlights, and adding contrast ….. ahhhh, then I turned out the lights, stood back from the screen, and marveled at the images. I don’t know anymore, everything is looking good,….. or is it just my imagination, once again, running away with me ?
