Here is a little taste of what is one of my favorite subjects to photograph. Commercial food photography has grown to be a great inspiration in my work. Especially so in two places. First is the use of food photography in the advertising world because great visual communication can be very successful, and the ideas of what we think is successful interest me. The enjoyable part for me is the challenge of creating an image that clearly communicates everything we love about food. The second part of my interest comes from a back ground in fine arts. Cezanne, Matisse, Manet all had beautiful ways of painting food. Just like in photography, the quality of light in those paintings, is just as important as the subjects themselves. In a way the "light" could be the main subject in some of those beautiful still life paintings. In these cases its easy for me to think of the photography process similar to painting. This aspect reminds me to create photography just like a painter paints. Here are a few new portfolio photos. Hope you enjoy, and all is well.
