Last week’s challenge was of a more abstract nature in asking you to share your visual concept of the Human Spirit. This week, in the tenth installment of TPC, I am going back to a more concrete concept in calling on you to share your best image(s) of Vegetables.
Of course, you may think that this will be an easy challenge, and you can make it that by taking a quick Instagram photo, but I’m counting on you to do much more than that! In this challenge, I’m looking forward to seeing some of your creativity at work in putting together an image that is worthy of display. Creativity in portraying your vegetables might involve color choices, composition, light angle and whatever else you may think to include!
A simple example is this organic carrots image that I did a couple of years ago.
This image is a simple approach to setting up a shot using a bit of lines to lead the eye, color repetition (that’s just orange paper) and a cutting board to provide contrast. I used reasonably soft light to eliminate any harsh shadows, which would take away from the carrots.
For those who’d like to participate in this weekly challenge, the rules are the following:
- Write a post with an image for this week’s topic
- Please tag your post with fpj-photo-challenge (if you’re not sure about how tags work, please check out this WordPress article about tagging posts)
- Create a pingback link to this post, so that I can create a post showing all of the submissions over the week
- Have fun creating something new (or sharing something old)!!
I am confident that there is going to be some serious creativity this week! And don’t forget to invite your friends to the party and remember to have fun!!
This image was captured using a Canon EOS 5D Mk III using an EF 24-105mm f/4L lens. Exposure settings were 1/100 second at f/8 at 1o0 ISO.
