An artichoke! Right. . . so this month I decided that instead of chasing after a child that I would instead photograph a willing subject. I thought an artichoke with it's abundance of texture might make for interesting black + white still life photos. Food photography is, of course; usually in color but I thought that these worked well despite the lack of color. This was a good learning experience in that I got to really focus on light and shadow. I love photographing the kiddo - she's kind of my muse and the reason I picked up a camera again. It just gets frustrating
always sometimes when I see perfect light but can't convince her to stand a certain way or whatever to make my "vision" work. The dog seems to be of the same mind so I think once in a while I'm just going to raid the fridge when I feel like having a stress free photo session.
