Souvenir Foto School | Food + Foto (Assignment Three)

50mm lens | f/1.8 | 1/30 | iso 640 | kitchen ceiling floodlights at night, diffused by white photo umbrella
Our recent assignment was photographing linguine with pesto, but I only had enough time to work with parts of the ingredients.  Hence, the lonely head of garlic!  I shot this image at night.  I usually like to shoot with available daylight, but this was one of those times when I only had darkness, lamps, and lightbulbs.  I wanted to keep the soft, gossamer quality of the garlic skins.  They are so delicate and pretty to me.  I used my photo umbrella for diffusion, I also worked with some gorgeous Photoshop actions created by Souvenir Foto School.

  2. Hard to believe this soft pretty image was taken indoors at night Charmaine, talk about a challenge! You did a really great job... I love that you isolated an ingredient and made it tell a story all on its own :) love...

    1. Thanks, Catherine! It's been easier for me to shoot only the ingredients. Less stuff to put together with a busy schedule ;) I'm going to play around more with different lighting situations--it's pretty fun!
