I wanted to photograph some basic items which can be found in any kitchen. I was inspired by photos on Pinterest and decided to take some photos of flour and eggs. I saw some images on Pinterest where people had drawn hearts in the flour and I wanted to try this. Although a bit messy, it definitely makes the flour look a lot more interesting.
This year, I set myself the challenge of doing more product photography. I set out to find local produce and other interesting subjects to photograph from the comfort of my home.
While shopping, I came across some ‘wonky avocados’, I love the idea of being able to buy produce which is less than perfect rather than wasting them.
Strangely, only perfect avocados are usually photographed. You don’t often see imperfect ones advertised, but avocados do come in all shapes and sizes.
Here are some photos I took, using natural light by my window:
I have been focussing a bit more on product photography recently, selecting interesting subjects to photograph such as food and drink. I came across an interesting iced tea bottle in my local shop that I thought would be interesting to photograph.
Below are some photos I took, using natural light in my garden and a shallow depth of field to make the subject stand out amongst the background.
