Fun With Still Life Vegetables


When you're sitting around at home and can't think of something to shoot, why not raid the kitchen? These still life photographs of vegetables show what you can do with a little imagination and skill. And all of them are quite achievable with minimum setup. Side lighting from an open window, an open aperture and a little good composition will get you a long way!

some great colours I didn’t even know were possible with vegetables. great post. might get the carrots out for a photo shoot!

I’m so pleased you did a post on photgraphing veggies! I often think what lovely colours and shapes they are. Hubbie thought I was just a tad mad when he caught me photographing the Broquil before I cut it up to cook!

Good photos however, I would suggest some work on the lighting – possibly defused lighting would work better. Cheap and easy to make filters.

It reminds me of Jaun van der Hamen’s bodegones from Spanish 17th century art. Still lives peppered with veggies? Totally van der Hamen.

Wonderful still lifes. You have used such skill in the set up and of course the photography. These are all paintings waiting to happen. Beautiful brilliant colors and marvelous ideas
