I’ve recently started to actually schedule time into my “work week” and dedicate it to working on personal projects. Up until now, my attention was only really given to these projects when I had the time, usually when I was on a break or when convenient. I recently spent a day working on a new approach to photographing food, inspired by the food photography of artist Florent Tanet and photographs I had seen in contemporary food journal, The Gourmand.
After a few hours of experimenting with some fruit, I came up with these two shots. One, a more commercially styled and lit shot, and the other more fun and playful. I hope for this to be the beginnings of a new personal and frequent series of work, looking at food photography in a much more playful way.
