Top 12 Images of 2014
My favorite images from last year:
12. In 2013 I was determined to photograph some crawfish. The need became more real when I needed to start working on my food calendar. I did a little study of one of the crawfish. It was fun to photograph, and different from all the produce I have been working with.
11. I’ve been wanting to photograph some really nice chocolate chip cookies. Sadly, whenever I make cookies, they kept coming out flat. Recently, thanks to watching Alton Brown, I figured out that I was rushing the butter/sugar stage of cookie making. These cookies came out better! Next time, I want to photograph them with more chocolate chips exposed.
I really liked this image from the collection of images because it best told the story of chocolate chip cookies fresh from the oven.
7. Forever I was looking for star anise. I have a client, Andi Lynn’s Elderberries, and I needed to have some on hand for when she adds this spice to one of her syrups. I’ve added this image to the list because I loved the textures and the depth the lighting added to the image.
5. When I went to visit my In-Laws, their citrus trees were loaded with fruit. One morning it rained and I just had to go and photograph the fruit on the trees. This made it on my top 12 because of it’s lifestyle nature.
4. Through Azure Standard I ordered some juicing apples for my own baking. In my box I ended up getting some of the cutest little apples. I had planned many different ideas on how I would photograph them, but only ended up doing a few ideas. This was one of my favorites.
3. Sometimes when I shop at Whole Foods, I look to see what fun new things I could photograph for kicks. This one week I found some Inca Berries. This one is one of my favorites because I felt I accomplished a Chiaroscuro (light-dark) kind of lighting.
2. I may have taken this in another year. But it’s one of my favorite images ever. I think it was in my 2014 folder, but after I put all this together, I think I found out it was taken in 2013. So, it’s going to stay. I really love it.
1. This past year I worked really hard on my calendar. I still have yet to finish the calendar portion, but most of the image are done. The citrus part of the calendar took me a while to put together, but I finally found how I wanted to style it, and it became one of my top, number favorite images of last year.
Thank you so much for reading and looking at my images. Here’s to the new images in 2015! I can’t wait to see what’s in store.
