One Monday I had the pleasure of visiting Michelle Head of CakeyBakey Boutique. She had just completed a series of wedding cakes and some Christmas Cupcakes. She is very creative and detail oriented.
There are few things I enjoy more then bread fresh from the oven, unless it is fresh bread with butter or jam. There was steam still rising from this bread when I took these pictures. Some of the fringe benefits that make food photography fun.
I have seen a lot of Bluejays this fall.
On Saturday November 22 I will participate in the 2nd Annual Artisan Fair being held at Willow Creek Baptist Church, 2387 Gill Road, Midhurst. I will have on display some mounted prints and some cards using the images shown below. Examples of Wildlife and Nature Photography.
I was recently challenged to find some Gluten Free Desserts for a friend.
I recently had the opportunity to meet Jake Stezinar from Apple & Acorn Woodworking. He supplied the breadboards that made these pictures possible. I was very impressed with the high quality of the cutting boards he supplied.
This assignment involves using food to create scenes from real life.
It is not surprising that after years working as a baker and pastry chef, my photographic interests have evolved into shooting food. Food photography is a still life specialization of commercial photography, aimed at producing attractive photographs of food for use in advertisements, packaging, menus or cookbooks. Professional food photography is a collaborative effort, usually involving an art director, a photographer, a food stylist, a prop stylist and their assistants (Manna, Lou; Moss, Bill. Digital Food Photography, 2005).
The assignment is to produce images from mythology. Every country or race has it’s own set of God’s. The God’s would be nothing without the people for the stories that are passed on down from generation to generation deal with how the God’s have interacted with us. Often the God’s dealt indirectly with man through various creatures. In Norse Mythology we have the Fenris wolf and Midgard Serpent. In Greek mythology we have fauns, centaurs and the minotaur to name a few.
Earlier this fall I was challenged to shoot jewellery with the four elements for themes, earth, water, fire and air.Each peace of jewellery has its own preferred background to show it off well.
