Praticing food photography; Figs and berries

It’s fig season, or so I found out when I went to the market and a couple of minutes later walked away with a tray of 16 figs for 5,- and also just over a found of blueberries… I mean, why not! Only to think to myself; what am I gonna do with all these figs!

So first thing before eating them, take to opportunity for some food photography!

I had some weird looks when I cycled into the park with my little blue table. And when I was later on setting up the table with some fancy dishes and only fruits…., people just stopped and stared, with half a smile on their face. The great thing about shooting in a big open space is the light, which really worked well in this shoot!

Any tips, trick or feedback is of course more then welcome!!

  1. Lovely pictures! And I really admire you to take your stuff to a public place to shoot there. I’d be too much of an introvert, just the thought of people stopping and watching and – at least in my imagination – shaking their heads…

    1. Hey Kiki,
      Thanks for liking!
      and yes, it was scary!
      But I felt that I had to challange myself and to be honest it was in the corner of the park and once I was really into the shoot, I did not notice them anymore.
      Also I felt pretty proud of myself that I did it 🙂
      …. and you’re always sure of enough daylight
