The Food Photography course is still on, but now it’s a monthly challenge. For October, the challenge is the colour orange. Three photos concentrating on the colour orange. I chose oranges. Not very original, I know, but I had a load of oranges in the house. And a vine strapped with cording to the fence groaning with grapes.
I have learned that lighting is everything. I took shots on cloudy days, shots on sunny days, shots under artificial lighting, with tripod and without … turns out early morning sunlight (but not sunshine) works best. At least I think so. I like the colours, the depth of colour, the contrast. Some of my fellow students (very politely) suggested that the contrast was too much on the photo of grapes and oranges. I very politely told them it was my favourite. I like contrast. I like ying and yangs that beg to bark.
Anyway….here are my three photos of orange stitched into a collage.
