It’s Day 17 of 30, and it’s harmony and balance today. All that plus light from the right direction, reflectors, silverware, plates and food.
After several shoots, I realised napkins and spoons just didn’t create the balance that I wanted, so I made soup, so we’d have something to eat for lunch. Celeriac and apple soup. And then I decided that the props might be something other than the usual. My props are the garnish on the soup: pecans, home-made wholemeal croûtons, and chives from the garden. Not just tossed about all casual, but instead … carefully placed, created … rather like gardening. So much work to make it look unplanned and natural.
