In the beginning, when I wanted to learn about light, I practiced with flowers. I wanted to learn how to reveal their delicate strength without blowing the high lights and how to create airy yet vibrant images. How to use light is a handy tool for a photographer, especially one that favored a clean and classical look.
Lately, I've been drawn to work that is less wide open light wise. Images that have a darker tone, still vibrant in color but warmer, deeper. I'm looking for texture and low lights now. I'm finding that food seems to be my model of choice. I think it's going to be a fun and tasty schooling.
The recipe for the pot pie can be found here. Just swap out the chicken and chicken broth for beef.
