This assignment was presented a couple of weeks ago, but I was on vacation so this is my first opportunity to work on this. I was thinking about it though and many ideas floated through my mind so thought I’d share my different concepts. I started with the composition above. Actually the first few shots did not include the milk bottle or the cloth tea towel. I do like those additions.
Whenever I shoot, I like to try different views. I like the simplicity of the one above. But then I got a little carried away as I tried out different props.
Somehow the picture above and the picture below were better in my mind! In the end I find both a little too busy for my taste. My eye keeps wandering around the image without knowing where to land!
Then I thought of pastry making in the style where the flour, butter, and eggs are mixed together on the surface.
I’m liking the above shot because I think the vintage knife adds an additional element of interest. But in the end, my personal favorite is this one below.
So there you have it, my Butter & Eggs assignment. This brings me current in class, which is a good thing cause a new lesson will be posted next week. In the meantime my friend Barb & I have a little play we want to do together using butternut squash. Stay tuned!
Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a fantastic weekend!
