One Photo A Day | Day 313 | Autumn Still Life
One photo a day challenge: Day 313.
Today seemed like a good day to work with my fall décor some more.
What are some creative ways I could photograph my fall themed items?
I reviewed my recent photos to see what I had done in the past.
The last thing I wanted to do was replicate something I had done recently.
In trying to decide what to photograph I decided to work with the combination of t bunch of corn cobs, the small white pumpkin, and the even smaller green pumpkin.
I used two different backgrounds for these images.
The objects were placed on a black surface. The background behind the images was a white surface.
This should create a nice clean look so the subjects stand out.
Often when I do my lighting I focus it on one side. But for this shoot I spread it out so everything would be pretty evenly lit.
I wasn’t quite sure what angles I was going to shoot from and I didn’t want to constantly move lights to adjust to what I was doing.
I don’t know if this was the best photo I made today, but I certainly think it was interesting. A good combination of colors and shapes. Interesting contrasts. Differences in focus from sharp to blurry.
