I decided to focus on two of my favorite thanksgiving dishes- sweet potatoes, and green bean casserole. I experimented with using bounce light from my speedlight combined with window light. (I’m attaching a picture of my set up to help explain). A difficult aspect for me was to get the vertical lines to look vertical. A tripod helped a lot.
Also, because I had only a small area to work, I tried to use small versions of all the elements.
A special thanks goes to my sister for making her green bean casserole for me! We’re planning on submitting the picture and recipe to Nature Friend Magazine. It’ll be exciting if it get published there.

Here are my photos. It was fun to think of creative shots to do with food. But it was also somewhat difficult because I had trouble with focus, and our dining room is not set up for eating in, so it was really tight with space. Overall, I am glad I was able to do it and learn through the process.October 28, 2023 at 8:00 pm #83419Allison EstabrookParticipant
Here are my photos! HUGE thanks to my mom who was able to cook a lot of this for me even though I wasn’t available to! I shot the photos a little later in the day than I would have liked, so I struggled with the lighting. I got some good shots at first, but the sun went down fast and it got harder towards the end.
I cropped a lot of them into a more square shape, but I had one that I submitted a cropped and an un-cropped version, because I wasn’t completely happy with the way I cropped it.October 28, 2023 at 8:02 pm #83425Allison EstabrookParticipantOctober 31, 2023 at 1:17 pm #83445James StaddonKeymaster
Wow, incredible photos everyone! Can’t wait to critique them tonight on the webinar! https://www.lenspiration.com/product/photo-coaching-94/November 3, 2023 at 5:23 pm #83628James StaddonKeymaster
This was a more difficult assignment, so I was blown away by how many of you photographers submitted photos!
And the webinar was really good. After structured critique of one, randomly-chosen photo from each participant using the scoreboard, we were inspired to greater heights by comparing your best shots to similar shots I found on stock websites. Then, of course, we announced the winner. It was a good webinar. Members can re-watch it here: https://www.lenspiration.com/video/webinar94/
And congratulations to Elijah @sager7 for being the winner for this assignment! Good work everyone.
