Food Photography, Day 5

Photos from Day 5 of the food photography course that I’m taking. Lots of photos taken, but these two are the best of the lot.

Today’s Assignment: height and framing the subject of the photo. I use light and dark and shadows to serve as a frame on the first photo, which I think turned out rather interesting. My thinking is that ‘a frame’ needn’t be a physical structure – so I chased shadows in the kitchen for a framing effect. The second photo isn’t a favourite; it has the height but should have been taken closer to a 90-degree angle for better effect. I’ll work on that ‘angle’ thingy later. For the framing bit, I positioned the tomatoes over a horizontal line on my iPad cover. Again, a frame is a frame is a frame … right? Is it necessary that a frame always enclose its subject matter; can’t it also delineate as well?

    How did you decide on which course to take? There are so many out there. Like the shadows.
