Not really sure what I'm gonna say in class about these yet, but I really like how they turned out! I had fun just taking pictures with Ryan. It took me a while to get everything all set up and motivated for these pictures and Ryan was so patient and wonderful! I can't thank I'm enough for doing this with me and for being AWESOME! He didn't even laugh at me being a crazy photo nerd! More pictures from this series coming soon. -S
This is a project titled "Food as Fetish" for my studio lighting class, there were very few parameters for this project so it was quite easy to just go crazy and have a little fun with studio lighting. The requirements for this were that it relate to food in some way, be shot in color on digital or slide film and be shot using some of the skills we have learned in the last few weeks. For these shots I used a strobe kit and a soft box to make a very nice even light that casts across the image from left to right. As far as the concept goes for this image I was inspired by Sophie Calle's "Chromatic Diet" and I wanted to speak to the emphasis that I see all around me on the presentation of food. It seemed that how a meal looks is far more important than how it tastes or even its nutritional value. I also just wanted to make some crazy colored waffles! I have some good pictures of the process and the huge mess I made in my boyfriend's parent's kitchen. Those pictures will be coming soon when I get them all edited.
