Thinking about the abundance of culinary delights we sampled over the last week led me to a photographic contemplation of the humble pear. In many ways, so simple and beautiful, and yet a complicated fruit. Add to that the concept of perspective, and I had my hands full with camera and instruction manual (yes, I do consult it frequently since I have not memorized it). My inability to comprehend geometry made the process more than challenging. All part of a photographer's education.
So here is a shot that although it was made from just slightly above the jar and pear, is definitely listing.
In the next shot, I placed the camera on the table surface and made the photograph from the same level as the honey and pear.
The next two shots involve perspective, which I indicated earlier is much clearer now. My husband, an architect and weaver, did a series of sketches that helped me understand what was happening between the level of the camera and the relative position of the pears.
Pear in a box. Almost got it.
Thanks to Andrea for inadvertently supplying material for the photograph - her magical A's Bees honey!
until next Monday,
a passion for the image
