Dr. Wife and I have been using Green Bean Delivery for a few months now, and although we have gotten a number of things that we didn’t particularly care for (and occasionally have struggled to use up everything we get each week) overall we’ve been fairly pleased with the service. When you are as busy as we are, having a few fresh ingredients brought to your door is a nice luxury. Over the last couple of weeks we’ve been getting some delicious rainbow carrots in our bin, and although we are starting to get a little bit of a backlog in carrots (after all, there are only so many carrots you can eat), this particular batch of carrots is particularly pretty.
Working with raw foods can be an interesting task, mainly because you need to create drama and interest without having a fully cooked dish to work with. When shooting raw foods or ingredients it is particularly important to start with really beautiful subjects. As I mentioned in my last post about the bitter melon, I have been working on a series of images that focus on exactly that: really beautiful food. Things to remember when designing a food photograph: color, light, composition, and drama. Today’s image is a grafitti eggplant with dramatic lighting.
How many posts do you think I can possibly start with some variation of the phrase “It’s been a busy month and I haven’t had time to work on the blog”? Apparently a lot. The good news (for me anyway) is that the reason posting has been so light lately has been because of the a whole lotta work which I hope to be able to share shortly. The other thing that has been taking up a lot of time for me is several personal projects.
