Here’s a photo from yesterday’s food shoot, but in a different direction than the other more “old world” photos. Some may not like the way the fork blends into the background, but that’s probably the part I like best about this shot.
The shot is actually a composite of four images taken at different time,s as the photo evolved. One for the overall shot (two long drips with the pools of sauce, plate and Background), the garnish, the drip on the left and the drip on the right. I’m not great at Photoshop, but I’m not bad either… :o)
The big box was important to give the large soft highlights on the sauce, “blow out the background, and keep the fork’s reflection from becoming black. A happy medium had to be reached in the intensity of that light. I really liked the way the fork almost disappeared, but that was really a happy-accident. Don’t get me wrong. I saw it happening and could of changed it if I wanted to, but sort of fell in love with it.
