... where it's not about the camera.
Produce night, at last! Thanks for bringing it back, Rick. I've missed it. And great job, as usual. But, come on, admit it: the shot of the plums is staged, right? Not that there's anything wrong with that - no telling what else you might've arranged to make your compositions more pleasing - but it seems obvious and heavy-handed, not your style at all. Or, I could be wrong and, if so, never mind.
Off Topic...I spent yesterday twisting and turning beneath the Minster and through The Shambles of York....couldn't help but think 'Rick Lee would have a photographic field day here'. Ever been?
Rick, I was missing my veggie porn. Thanks.And tell me the plums aren't "fauxtography"? Was "Green Helmet Man" visiting the Winn-Dixie?
Just curious RickWhen you pick your "subjects" to photograph - do you see the colors or the composition first?
Staged or not, I dig it. Nice job! Also, I especially like the second one. What is it about water droplets that seems to make a picture?
Man... tough crowd here tonight. Yes, I staged the plums. Sometimes you just need some contrast. I wasn't that happy with that shot in general but I liked the color. Buffy... yes, I had several field days in York. We were big fans of Brideshead Revisited so we made the pilgimage to Castle Howard. It looks a lot smaller in person but still it was very cool to go there after experiencing that wonderful mini-series. You can see several images from that trip here.Colors or composition first? I dunno... I guess that colors are a really big factor in the composition to me, so I guess it's a combination of things. I haven't done B&W photography for a long time so I tend to think about color as a primary factor in the composition.
Great pics. Its food and its art, two of my favorite things.
Stage away.Last time I checked, no one was complaining about war crimes against plums or peaches.
I've missed it too. Love the shot of he green onions!
