Do you know what one of the biggest problems with doing food photography?
Yep, you need food for it.
I suppose you could buy it, but we are basically stuck at home so that is a bit hard. The only thing to do is make my own, so that is what I did.
I make some fluffy pancakes to take photos of.
I have been making my own plates and bowls from clay and modelling clay. I think I spoke about it last time. They are ready now to use so I wanted to try some in some food photography.
I made the pancakes and used some backdrops I have to set up my food to photograph.
I also videoed it and if you want to see how I set it up take a look at my latest YouTube video, Experimenting, gardening and Susie.
I’ve sort of struggled with this a bit. What do I show, what will people want to see, but you know what? I think I just have to do what I want.
I love the garden and think it should be part of it, so there is a garden update. I love photography, so there is some photography there as well. I had to include some footage of Susie too because Klara keeps asking me to.
It is fun and I find it gives me something to focus on. We are stuck at home, still in lockdown and I can’t say I am sorry about it. I think the safest place right now is home, so doing things around the house really suits me. You know, I love being home. I really am a homebody.
So I am going to show you a few of the photos from my food photography. Not sure I am getting any better, but there you are.
Take care everyone. Get vaccinated and make the world a safer place.
