This month for the Photographer’s Connection Just Shoot it! Challenge, I was challenged to get creative with food photography. Maybe it’s how ridiculously cold and snowy it has been lately, but my creative inspiration came from frozen fruit and flowers. It sort of evolved from there into snow AND champagne. And freezing the flowers did not work at ALL like I imagined. And ultimately I wanted to do this shoot mid afternoon, but then only had time to do it well after sunset. BUT, I still really really like some of the shots that I ended up with. One of my goals was to arrange the fruit creatively but to also pay close attention to the details, which I think I did improve on. My other big goal was to really focus in this shoot on not overshooting and on getting the shot right and in correct focus as quickly as possible (partially because, hello, snow inside with the heat quickly turns into a watery mess), because this is something I know I need to work on in my photography in general.
So, what do you think? Do these photos make you want to run out and get some delicious fruit for your next ice cream or cocktail? Or possibly just go out and play in the snow?
