This week's Project 52 Assignment was A Cook's Kitchen. The idea was to shoot either a cook or their "world famous" recipe. However, if we chose the recipe, we had to show the cook's involvement by showing hands.
I can tell you that this is easier said than done. Deciding on a composition was easy, and Angela graciously agreed to provide a pair of hands. Lighting it, however, is something else. I ended up using my 2 GODOX strobes; a Yongnuo speed light; a Westcott Octabox; a 5-in-1 flash diffuser; a white fill card; several scrims and light stands. Our living room got so crowded that there was barely enough room for Angela. It was shot at
24-70 @ 38mm
The end result was worth it. Don liked the shot. His only suggestions were that if I wanted to reduce the light to camera right even more, a black flag card would do it. Also, if I wanted to crop the tomatoes, I could do it because the cucumber was already partially cropped.
Thanks for looking everyone.
