So my practice with the DSLR continues. I am still practicing with produce. I have also moved on to shooting other elements as well. But I don’t think I am quite ready for shooting anything cooked, assembled, and plated just yet. So far, the simple, non-fuss required produce is the easiest for this newbie. But I’m slowly getting out of my comfort zone too, at my own pace.
I am cutting melons. Come join me and feel free to eat off the board as I am cutting. Lol. Tell me that is the message you get from the picture too.
This here is a melon soju I made.
I always get a kick out of the cocktails served inside the fruits. They are fun to drink! I placed it on a bamboo type place mat to hopefully achieve some sort of summery vibe. The story: It’s summer. It’s hot. Come have some melon soju with me. But someone please help me with the background! I set the F stop to as lowest it can go, but it’s not blurring the background as much as I’d like. Do I step back further to achieve this? I guess maybe next time using the soju bottle as props would be nice too.
I even shot water! Which shot do you like better? Placed on a silver cake board or the plain white board? I personally prefer the first. I like the shine.
What food blogger shoots water, and then posts it?! A nice, tall, cold glass of ice water is definitely a must have everyday, especially during the hot summer days. I was trying to make the ice water look as cold and refreshing as I could. Any tips for achieving this? Like, I want to be able to make a hot and thirsty person want to reach in and grab the glass of ice water. How do I do this?
