My favourite - Strawberries and cream...

Posted by
Sunder (Chennai, India) on 14 October 2010 in Food & Cuisine and Portfolio.

I tried this formal composition which explains why some green leaves are still retained...just my idea to add some more colour to the image.

I tend to avoid those leaves while eating:):):) , but add plenty of sugar instead to S &C..!!!

Again, sugar added to strawberry and cream wasnt as appealing to the eyes as it was to my taste buds ..hence this shot is taken without sugar...

It was a field day for me !!! many strawberries in cream , due to various combinations ( with & without leaves, sugars..etc..) for the "photo- shoot" cant just throw them away ...and having mixed them with cream and sugar - cant store them...well you HAVE to eat them....
I LOVE Food Photography get to eat a lot of goodies..

Pierre from Belgium

Ca à l'air d'être bon mais je trouve l'image un peu sombre.

14 Oct 2010 7:21am

@Pierre: Oui, l'exposition légèrement augmentée a vraiment fait une différence. Merci pour votre commentaire.

marci from somewhere in..., Morocco

I love the shots we get to eat afterwards! some soft powdered sugar may have worked, perhaps? regardless, yummy shot!

14 Oct 2010 7:30am

@marci: Great idea...will try out sometime. Thanks.

Florence from Paris, France

You, greedy. :-))
Composition is fine, however I would have added more contrasts and/or saturation on strawberries. But that's a personal opinion. :-)

14 Oct 2010 7:58am

@Florence: Yes, on seeing your note, I tried what you have suggested and it certainly looks better. Thanks.

Sarito from Basingstoke, United Kingdom

Looks tasty..mmmm.. nice shot.. I think it needs a little bit more light to hightlight the colours, IMO.

14 Oct 2010 8:30am

@Sarito: In addition to contrast & saturation as suggested by Florence, I increased the exposure (as you said) was indeed good. Thanks, Saravanan.

Haha, so by the end of "Sampling", "Testing" , "Reviwing" each sugar / strawberry / cream combination, you didn't have anything left to shoot-so you had to buy some more??!!

Have you tried strawberries with a sprinkle of fresh pepper? It's a great combination

14 Oct 2010 10:09am

Good evening Sunder
It looks very appetizing, and is to my taste. However, I would not eat the green leaves of the strawberries. The photo is very beautiful. Have a nice evening and all the best. Sincerely Christel

I think you better reshoot this without the leaves. Then you'll have to eat them after. ;-)
