Food Photography, Day 17

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.

Apple and Celeriac Soup
Apple and Celeriac Soup

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.
