OBJECTIVES: For this assignment we will be concentrating on the idea of abstraction, but with something you find in your kitchen: FOOD!
THINK ABOUT YOUR ELEMENTS OF ART AND DESIGN PRINCIPLES FOR COMPOSITION: LINES, SHAPES, RHYTHM, PATTERN, CONTRAST, EMPHASIS, TEXTURE, ANGLES, DRAMA, LIGHTING, VANTAGE POINT DEPTH OF FIELD.
WHAT TO DO: Your subject matter will be food: fruit, vegetables, cooked food, raw food, grains... BE CREATIVE! Extreme close-up, use shallow depth of field, slice up the fruit or vegetables - look inside - make it abstract! Change your point of view or angle... Pay attention to your background - use a dark or a light (white) background. No distracting backgrounds!
DON'T FORGET ABOUT LIGHTING!!! USE NATURAL LIGHT FROM A WINDOW OR GLASS DOOR OR USE ARTIFICIAL LIGHTING: FROM A PHONE OR LED LIGHT. LIGHTING COMING IN FROM AN ANGLE WILL ENHANCE THE TEXTURE OF THE FOOD.
You can use your camera in LIGHTROOM MOBILE IN PRO MODE (you need to shoot DNG) or a DSLR camera. SHOOT as MANY PHOTOS AS YOU NEED. You are required to SUBMIT 30 IMAGES. Remember set your White Balance to AWB and your ISO to 400. You can raise your ISO up to 800 if your available light is not that strong. You can lower your ISO if you have a lot of available light. Change your shutter speed (SECS) to capture the correct exposure. Make sure your shutter speed does not go lower than 1/60.
