Last week, my fellow photographer friends and I got together with our graphic designer friends to decorate some Christmas cookies. Decorating the cookies was a lot of fun, even though Jay only made inappropriate ones. Somehow, one cookie ended up having a whole orange on top. It was very relaxing and a great time spent with the friends I have made here. Later that day, we all went to Liz’s home for dinner before heading out to see the Boston Pops Christmas show at Symphony Hall. The venue was beautiful and the show was amazing. The orchestra played Christmas classics with a few new twists.
For my friend Annabelle’s food blog Belle’s Best Bites, I went over for brunch and photographed the food prep. It was a delicious meal and the ingredients were fantastic to photograph as they were so bright and fresh. Plus, what brunch would be complete without a sparkling berry drink to go with the meal?
Glass was another surface we were asked to shoot in the studio. As it is transmissive, there was a lot to learn about how to properly light it. This shot was lit from behind with a black card behind the blue wine glass. As there are some defects in the glass, the outline is not perfect, but I like the end result. I also shot a yellow glass on white background. I especially enjoyed lighting transmissive objects as the results with the correct lighting could be quite beautiful.
