I never realised cabbages could be beautiful!

It was hard to work out the light and blur in this one – too much dark and it was too cabbagey, too light and it lost its structure..hoping I’ve found a happy medium..!

More Quiet Work

A lovely quiet time taking these today, although it took ages trying to get a shot I was happy with..and I’m still not totally pleased with some of the focus in a few. I wanted the background blurred but a few more seeds clear..maybe a slightly wider depth of field next time. I may try the lone seeds with the cloth up the wall too – I thought I wanted that separating line, but now I’m not so sure..anyway, it was a good learning day!

I found these gorgeous seed heads in the lane, which begged to be used with the bowl (who still felt he had not had enough attention yet)

Even our lunatic cat chilled out, he was rolling around and watching me all afternoon.

There has been a feeling of seasonal change in the air over the past few days, which maybe explains the Autumnal themes creeping out in my indoor sessions this week.

I’ve not tried much food related photography before – this was great fun! It’s teaching me a lot about working with natural light and colour..
