food in still life 2


I've been meaning to post this second part of food in still-life for a little time now, but with today's news of the sale of my exhibition picture of the apples (in my previous post), this has prompt me to do so. You may like to have a peep at the original post regarding the exhibition held at the Culinarium restuarant, and how the pictures are printed directly on acrylic.
The gallery of pictures in this post are also a favourite of mine, but due to the exhibition being held during autumn, I decided to run with the food of its season and due to the wall space that was offered.

Even though I had entered the Saturday farmers' market with a fruit or vegetable in mind to photograph, it was hard to be a stickler with my tiny models. I came across a unique looking luminous yellow and red striped lettuce (as seen in the gallery below); a lettuce whose variety the stall assistant and myself could not fathom out, but we presumed it came from the Cos family. Another interesting find was the artichokes that had already gone into flower; regardless of not being able to be eaten they did make an interesting photographic subject. Another find was these tiny green pumpkins (in the gallery) whose use was suitable for decoration only. Oh, and I mustn't forget to mention the elegant purple and white striped eggplant and the purple capsicum that I picked up. Not having a clue what to place them on, and as my luck would have it at the flea market that same day; I stumbled across the same colour green and purple patterned bowl as the capsicum for just 5 Euros. 

Here's a tomato soup and Asian mushroom dish that I made with the produce the following day—only because I was too pooped to make on the Saturday!
