Pretty Spinach Flowers
Here is my first entry for dear Susan’s Black and White Wednesday, a new culinary photo event. I had the pleasure of participating and then hosting Susan’s popular event MLLA which revolves around My Legume Love Affair!
Although I love vintage and black and white portraits, I never ventured into taking food photos in black and white modes. The vibrant colours of food and anything related to food is what excites me and the thought of clicking them just in two colours never appealed to me till I came across some beautiful shots of B&W food pictures taken by awesome food bloggers. So when I came across these beautiful spinach flowers, I went on to experiment them in B&W mode and here is the result. Although I don’t think this is my best B&W shot, I am hoping to learn more during this process. This is my first baby step on a very long journey of B&W food pictures and I am hoping to gain more confident, and may be a better vision, as I gingerly take some more steps in future!
This second picture was shot in colour mode and I played with getting a vintage look using Photoshop. I love the subtle greens of spinach flower and the light coming from back window giving it a dreamy effect!
