Mackinac Macarons, and more of Carol Marie !
Hi. How are you ? I am good, but my main computer could be better. I took it in today to the Best Buy Geek Squad and will not see it for another 3 weeks. The Mother Board has blown her top! Therefore, I am working on my laptop, and hoping these images look good.
I was invited by Carol Marie to one of her parties … not crashing it, photographing it. I loved every minute. These are of the final presentation, just before the open wide for chunky stage. I was shooting in a garage making use of Rembrandt lighting. I was the last stop in the production line before the Edible Delights made their public debut. This was a full menu party, appetizers,main course,and desserts. How lucky am I ? Well, I missed the main course. How could I ? Easy, Tony was grilling the meat on the patio, and I was in the garage wrapped up in the beautiful colorful delights, on trays, placed in front of me. I missed an opportunity, but yes, I learned from it (but what, I’m not sure…hurry? ). Lets take a gander.
Are you noticing what I am? I like these shots, they are definitely my style. Each image pulls your eyes to the lower right-hand corner. The balance and harmony are equally pleasing, and the colors are cheery and vibrant. I choose the pineapple picture because of the interest in the upper left-hand corner. That shot is just a little different from the others. Let me show you some pictures taken with my other eye.
Here we have MACKINAC MACARON’S. This is what I was doing while Tony was grilling. If you are on a laptop, please adjust your screen so the colors are rich, and not under exposed. The reason I love stationary monitors, it shows you what I want you to see.
These cookie’s are out of this world. They explode with a burst of flavor, then melt in your bouche. We have Pistachio, Basil Lime, and Grapefruit Butter Cream. OMG!
I know, the composition is similar here also, but I have included a bullseye image, a left top corner to right bottom corner, a bottom left to upper right, and a front to back. Should I pull away more ? I don’t know… is this what I am seeking ? or is it just my comfort zone? I find these types of shots fun for me, does that mean they are not good because they are effortless ? Should I be struggling with myself to take a shot I cannot see or feel ? I see and feel these. …..but, it never hurts to take a chance, you never know what may turn up when the camera is turned on. I’ll try that concept next time.
