Weekly Photo Challenge 2016 | Week #04: ‘Taste’

2016 Weekly Photo Challenge: "04. Taste" | Reghan Skerry

I love food photography. It’s one of my favourite subjects to experiment with, and something that I really want practice more. I also really love to bake (though I’m on a bit of a post-holiday hiatus at the moment), and food photography is both an excellent excuse to make food that looks amazing, and a way to play with lighting and styling techniques with a subject that looks good and doesn’t move too much.

I didn’t make these peppermint patties. And I’m not 100% happy with the picture itself (once again, I had to improvise a bit with my subject, and I’m at the mercy of the light right now). I might revisit this particular prompt later in the year. But as this challenge goes on, I’m probably going to take any opportunity I can get to take pictures of food anyway, so it might not be an issue.
