Practicing Food Photography: Mushrooms & Garlic

Mushrooms and garlic 3

I wanted to experiment with some more food photography, so I had a little photo shoot using some mushrooms & garlic.

I used a 50mm 1.8 Nikon lens for this, and I’m very pleased with the result.

But of course I would like your feedback on this, which one do you think is the best?

  1. Difficult choice but I think I like the top one best, it makes me smile. 🙂

    1. Hey Lorna, I think that no 1 & 2 are also my favorites 🙂

  2. I love these, Angela, they’re excellent – and without a doubt my favourite is the one you’ve got at the top! Why? Well, some of the others are pictures of food; good pictures of food, but just pictorial.

    Of the 3 ones of mushrooms alone on the vivid cloth, two are singles. But the top photo has 3 mushrooms, they’re in different postures to one another – quirky, humorous, they look like 3 people in big hats standing there, or maybe even dancing there; and, finally, having a wide area of the picture’s foreground out of focus gives the picture much valuable depth. Good image! Hope this is helpful. Adrian

    1. Yes very helpful Adrian! This little shoots, that you can just practice at home, in this case the garden, teach you so much about photography, and above all is a lot of fun to do 🙂

  3. […] my last post I showed some photos of a little photo project I had in my garden, and asked which one you thought […]
