I am going to be repeating some photography here, well, at least this food has been featured already on my blog. However, the lighting setup was completely different and I used a completely different camera and setup.
This was my “rushed” attempt at food photography. I was walking back from the Salt Lake Farmers Market that another photographer needed help photographing a wedding and would I be available to help out. The wedding was going to start in 2 hours. I said yes and rushed home to get ready. I did spend about 15 minutes to photograph these fresh black mission figs, bundled carrots, and tiny yellow cherry tomatoes. I also wanted to try out my brand new table top.
So these photos are all natural light and photographed with my small camera. I own about 24 cameras that actually work, so sometimes I’ll switch up what camera I am using.
If there is anything that defines me as a photographer is flexibility. I don’t want to be stuck doing one thing the same way all the time. That gets boring. I want to photograph with natural light, strobe light, film, digital, studio, outside, models, “normal people”, fine art, snapshots, weddings, commerical, whatever. I just want to create.
Too often we get trapped in labels that limit and define us. I think we need to constantly redefine who we are and what we can do. With some planning and hard work, we can create anything. Even when we are trying to get ready for a surprise wedding!
