Chocolate Dipped Strawberries

What do reading glasses have to do with strawberries, apart from providing a size reference? Nothing but act as a symbol of my frustration at trying to photograph these strawberries.


I literally put my glasses down, took a deep breath and knew that if there wasn't one picture among those 200 and something, I would never have a picture then.


So this is the frustrated picture.



Deep down I knew I would have used this picture in the end (even though I thought it funny then) but, I still took another hundred, because I'm like that, and deleted them all once I saw them on my laptop.


Blurry, hazy, too close, too far, no reference, too yellow, too cold, bla bla bla.


I prefer to take pictures in natural light, so if I end up using artificial light and flash, please know that it's because I've done everything in my "limited-power-as-an-amateur-photographer" to use the natural light provided by the Universe and got nothing I liked in return.


This was the hardest time I ever had photographing miniatures, so I'm sorry for my introductory rant and for only having two or three pictures to show for the last 3 days of work.



This is my second batch of nine chocolate dipped strawberries in white, dark and milk chocolate. The first one didn't convince me so I thought I'd try something different.


I am very pleased with them, which balances out the photography hiccups, and I admit they do look very cute in this picture.


Hope you're getting on well with the prompts, if you don't know about this exercise I created, you can find all the info here 30daypolymerclayfoodprompt


Three down, 27 to go.


Thanks for reading and I'll catch you next time,


Love, Mai
