As promised, here are the delicious strawberries. The cherries are an heirloom variety known as Coral Cherries. They are the best cherries I’ve ever had. This was a shot done in my window again for the nice lighting. If anyone wants to, have a moment of silence for this fruit. It was promptly devoured by the kids after I was done shooting.
The carrots sold by at our farmer’s market are like candy. Especially after being roasted on the grill. It’s important to get the skinnier ones, since the really big ones take forever to cook.
The other shot from the farmer’s market. I’ll have to get some more on Sunday. I did do a quick arrangement of these for this shot.
Today’s Daily Shoot assignment required leaving the big camera alone. I read the assignment just after pouring my first cup of joe. The camera of choice was what I had near by, my iPhone. I think this shot is pretty good for my iPhone despite some blurry bubbles which bothers me a bit. The coffee is from Barefoot Coffee Roasters, my daily addiction. If you are ever in the San Jose area, worth a trip for a cup and some beans.
#ds144 – Put down your big, fancy camera today. Fully engage your artistic side by making a photo with minimal gear.
At oDesk, we’re lucky that one of our coworkers is married to naka_sf, an aspiring chef. We’re often treated to all kinds of macaroons as she experiments with variations of her recipes. It’s always a treat.
For today’s Daily Shoot assignment, the timing of a new batch arriving at the office was perfect. The white and green macaroons on the blue paper made for a nice composition. Unfortunately, I didn’t have a tripod and it wasn’t quite as sharp as I would have liked.
#DS75: “Sugar, spice, and everything nice. Make a photo of something sweet today.”
For this assignment I thought that a very nice looking tomato on a very sad looking vine was enough to make me pause. It is amazing that in late January, after some freezing and bad weather, the vibrant red color is still strong. Not to mention, the small green tomato seen just behind the red one. It may not be quirky, but it was definitely hmmm.
#ds67 – “Quirky things often catch your eye and make for interesting art. Make a photo of something that makes you go “Hmmm” today.“
#ds30: “Let’s try another color theme, this time make it green: green sleeves, green with envy, green eggs and ham, you name it!”
I struggled for awhile for something green to shoot that wasn’t a Christmas tree or other plant. The Perrier bottle caught my eye.
#DS23: “We can all use a little boost to get started in the morning. Make a photograph of your morning beverage of choice.”
What better than nice warm coffee in the morning. Barefoot Coffee, in a french press.
These indoor still life photos are making me want to get some lighting. These are warm, but I can’t get the colors to be just the way I want.
#DS29: “Show us some food you eat today, using DOF, perspective, or other tricks you’ve learned so far to make everyone hungry!”
No better day to have a food assignment than one that I get a birthday cake on!
