52 week photography project – Week 14: Still life with food

Welcome to Week  14 of our 52 week photography project where the theme was Still life with food

I’m not usually one of those people who take photos of food and if I do, I rarely share it. I think it’s because I prefer to leave that sort of photo to the professionals who have all sorts of styling tricks of the trade and it feels somehow out of character for me to share photos of food – unless it’s an empty plate, as I did share once!

But as I’ve said before – there’s a first time for everything.  Here’s my still life with food photo, I don’t think it’s my favourite shot but I tried hard to get into the spirit and that must count for something!

Banana Crepe

My accompanying words: A special Fijian banana crepe for breakfast – with a side serve of a chocolate sauce heart. We were there for a wedding after all!

This week’s photos were again very classy – Alison was grateful for food and good friends and her magazine worthy photo is just superb; Daniel’s photo is a menu and his advice on what to order; Grant was questioning if his photo was even a photo of food; Melanie shared a photo of a delicious looking breakfast; Sharon’s shot shows the sweet and sour of life in a very colourful, stylish way; and Tim shared a delicious looking minimalist meal which was also superbly shot.

Go and have a look for yourself and let me know what you think 🙂 Here’s the link again: Still life with food


What’s the story behind the 52 week photography project I hear you ask?

You can read all about it here: 52 week photography project  – but basically I have joined with 6 photographers, of varying experience, to take a photo every week for a year, one theme at a time. That’s 52 weeks of photos!

I’ve been assured it’s all about creativity, not necessarily photographic expertise – which is good to know!!

I like to do a wrap-up post each week linking back to the 52 Week project blog’s page to share the fantastic talent of the group and my posts have a page of their own now, so I can keep track of them easily: 52 weeks photography project

It’s great to be involved in such a creative challenge with a small supportive group.  I’d love to hear your thoughts on our various takes on any of these themes.  Be sure to click on the link to check out the full post over on the blog 52 Weeks Photography Group.

STOP PRESS:  This week I’ve been a guest over at Shaun’s Clockwork Clouds blog for his  Work in Progress Wednesday series – you can read it here!  Shaun is very supportive of other bloggers and their work in progress projects and I’m thrilled to be a part of his series.

    I am continually trying to improve my food photography. It is a great skill to have and continually work to improve.

    I love food pics. I follow one blog who just posts one picture of something yummy every day. Food porn😊

      I know many people do that sort of thing but it’s not something I can ever see myself doing! Maybe I’m just not into food enough.
