This is a photo that I shot for my J499 lighting class assignment. I am really proud of the work I did, I could see this favorite photo being something in Food Network Magazine, or Martha Stewart Living. If anything, I struggled with getting the correct lighting for my photos, because I really wanted to make sure they were not overexposed. I am really proud of the way they turned out, the variety of photographs I got, etc. I think my favorite parts of this photo are the rich colors of the vegetables. I love the contrast between the red/purple beets and the yellow squash. I also think that the seasoning and the garnishes really add an extra something to the photograph as well. I got a lot of inspiration for this photograph through food photos that I found on Pinterest. I am feeling a little nervous for the studio portrait assignment due next week, just because I really want to feel as proud about those pictures as I do about my food pictures! Overall I am really pleased with my food photos and will definitely be adding them to my portfolio.
