Make Room for Mushrooms

I'm feeling so good about getting back into shooting again! I had been letting things slip away from me -letting the everyday necessary obligations take over. I'm realizing that taking classes is a good way to motivate myself. I seem to respond well to having a deadline and I enjoy the community of a class even if it is on line. What works for me may not be what works for you though. Think about what motivates you ...what gets you excited..what gets you moving? I also love reading motivational books - it really helps to get me going.  ...and one good thing leads to another. ( I think I just create a quote - you may just see that  on a future image!!)

Here's some images from my latest food photography class offered at PPSOP by the wonderful food photographers Ron Goldman and Lara Ferroni.

Which one is your favorite?

Wooden Clothes Pins - another version

Another version of "the clothes pins".   I came across this quote that seems perfect for me and I'm sure many others! It's what I'm tying to think about everyday. Come take a step with me.

This photo was taken with an off camera flash and umbrella - backlit. I  use a white foam board to reflect some light back onto the front of the clothespins. 
Kim Klassens' texture "Felicity" was added in Photoshop.
I created a brush using Kim's tutorial for the type.
