Daily Prompt – Fork

Eat a dish of this!

With a prompt along the nature of Fork, as is suggested today by the WordPress Daily Prompt, there are many ways that we can go.  Without speaking with forked tongue, we can look at the fork in the road,  while some of us geeks might talk about forking a process on the computer (ask a geek what that means 🙂 ).

Then again, I might do something rather simple, although this was not my original image that I thought to use, as I will use that in another post about conceptual photography.

Stick a fork in it!

Then I thought that it might be a good idea to stick a fork in it!  And eat that dish of macaroni and cheese, as I’m hungry!

Hope you enjoy this fork!!

Technical Details

This image was captured with a Canon EOS 5D Mk II using an EF 100mm f/2.8 lens.  As I used studio strobes for this to get the lighting look that I was look for, the exposure settings were 1/100 second at f/8 and 100 ISO.

Inspired by Daily Prompt – Fork.

A Fresh Perspective Photography is more than just a vehicle for capturing the world around me; it provides me with a palette and a set of brushes, with which I paint not only what I see, but also look to express the emotions that are evoked by the scene in front of me in that moment. Growing up in the Netherlands exposed me to a wide cross-section of visual arts that laid the foundation of my photographic view of all that surrounds me. Early influences were the Dutch Masters of the 17th century, to whom I was introduced by my grandfather during museum explorations; favorites among them are the scenes of quotidian life depicted by Jan Steen and Frans Hals and the vivid landscapes of Jacob van Ruisdael. My classical high school education was supplemented by the Boijmans Van Beuningen museum, where I spent many a lunch hour exploring its great collection. Here I was introduced to surrealism with a particular love for the approach taken by Salvador Dali; Dali also rekindled my appreciation for the work of Hieronymus Bosch, who often showed the folly of us mortals. Universal Connections My approach to any photographic subject is to look for understanding first; in this I look to establish either a connection between the viewer and the subject or capture the connection of the subject with its surroundings. The captured image then aims to portray this connection from a perspective that is part of my personal interpretation. This interpretation is often a form of externalized introspection, which may alternately display the connection of isolated beings and items with their environment or highlight the whimsy of the profound world, in which we find ourselves. The universe is full of connections, many of which are waiting to be discovered; part of my journey as a photographer is to document these connections. Any assignment, be it an event, a product shoot or a portrait session is always approached through communication with the client; this is where the first connection is established. Ideas are exchanged and a collaborative plan of action forms, ultimately resulting in a set of images that aim to exceed the expectations of each client. And, lest we forget, it is important to have fun while practicing the serious business of photography!

  2. Ha ha I love this Frank! The “stick a fork in it” phrase made me laugh, and it reminded me how when I am too stuck in my mind, I can say this. Yummy photo too. Blessings. 🙂
