Kitchentowels used as props
Ok, I am no food blogger and will never be one. But when I now want to start to share my kitchentowels and bowls with you, I want to hopefully make them a bit more interesting than just to take a photo of them.
So when I was making pie for dinner yesterday, I thought why not try to take a photo and see how it turns out. This can be done in so many different ways, so if you are like me, have no idea, just do it as simple as possible.
Here are my "ingredients" for this photo. A cutting board, a towel, the pie of course and a couple of pieces of scones. I used my phone this time, as there is no need for any depth of field, and I was so eager to see how this would turn out.
I am no good at this, but I twisted my towel as it looks like they do that in many food photography shots. Placed my cutting board on top the towel and it tilted a little bit because the surface wasn´t flat. I used my wallet (it was the closest) to even out the tilting by putting it under the cutting board.
Then I plased the pie and the two bits of scones on the cutting board and started to take pictures. Now, I know I could have done so much more, but it is what it is. And do remember, that we all have to start from scratch learning new skills.
All in all, I think this came out quite ok. It is very simple, maybe too bland. I didn´t think about lighting or styling. But maybe you get inspired to try yourself, and you may be supergood at this.
The pie came out very good by the way. I used frozen pie shells that I filled with leeks, crispy bacon bits and egg/milk custard seasoned with salt, pepper and a bit of nutmeg.
