Food Backgrounds






I am creating a series of Food Backgrounds, five of which I am sharing with you today. Whenever there is an event with trays of food, I try to photograph them before people start to eat. I have many images which would make interesting backgrounds for presentations or articles about food, nutrition and/or health. When making backgrounds, I try to crop distractions such as the edges of baskets or bowls or large spaces without food. Cropping with the camera is easier, but to avoid contamination, I try not to get too close to the food while photographing it.

I planted, cared for, harvested and photographed the green peas just before freezing them. I cropped the cheese images from larger photos which had different types of cheeses. I zoomed in on the orange slices but wanted to leave hints of other types of fruit. I can crop closer if I wanted only the oranges. The same comments would apply to the watermelon image.

Like it seems a lot of Non Newfoundlanders once thought Seal esp Flippers and Flipper pie were Yuk!! Not so now ! as of course seals do need a reasonable cull adjusted annually. If done right
Nothing wrong with a Seal Hunt!! e don't these Anti-Folks visit Abattoirs?Seal Hunt gives work of all sorts as seal full of good things ie I recommend personally Seal Capsules for Omega 3 etc (good to aid Heart and also Immunity at time of Flu etc)
NB I have no financial comnnection with Seal Hunt! like you I only shoot with a Camera-As a Retd MD Pathologist -I always worked to keep living things living -ie once did cat autopsies to get lymphoid tissue to help with Feline Leukaemia Vaccine!
