Study of a potato

p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Study of a potato


I was getting ready to make dinner the other night and I pulled this sweet potato (yam) out of the closet and decided it just needed to be photographed. I ended up playing around with the framing and lighting quite a bit.

#1:







#2:







#3: similar to above but with softer lighting and a slightly warmer treatment







#4: like the first shot but with tighter framing







Every time I framed a shot, I thought about doing something in B&W but the colors of the leaves were just too much for me and I couldn't bring myself to get rid of them. I still might do some B&W conversions though. I'll have to live with these for a bit before I decide.

As always, CC are greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Dave

Dave,

I see why you decide to photograph it. It would have been better (more options) if it had sprouted at the other end.

Wild! Looks alive… like an axolotl. The colors are great.

That's exactly what I thought of when I saw it too! I'm glad it came across.

Thanks,

I can definitely see that. I actually thought of doing photos in his style once I started looking at what I was getting with this potato.

Thanks,

Dave
