Five A Day

So, just to prove that I do have a little variety in my photography I thought that I would post one of my non-people shots.

If truth be told I used to love doing stuff like this and it’s likely I will go back to my roots a bit …

… because I’m now finding it really difficult to approach people and ask to take their photograph. At the end of my 100 Strangers project I found it pretty easy to walk up to someone and say “Can I take your photograph for a project that I’m doing …”, but now I’m not really doing it for a project the whole thing strikes me as weird. I know it shouldn’t but it does … and I’m sure that I’m missing out on some great encounters as a result but c’est la vie – I just can’t quite shake the feeling!

So recently I was challenged to employ a few tricks of the trade to photograph food and this is the result – fruit smothered in oil – looks good enough to eat … but I wouldn’t if I was you ;).
