#Antithesis

My last couple of posts have featured carefully arranged and nicely presented food and drink, I wanted to see if I could carefully arrange the opposite. I’m quite pleased with the result, but I think they are still a bit ‘reserved’.

As an experiment, I posted these to the same hashtags that I posted the original pretty images, and predictably I didn’t get the same number of likes. However, I did get a favourable reaction from a few people – and one that I felt was more genuine.

I used the same approach to composition as the original pictures: a shallow depth of field or a flat lay.

I could have gone a lot more edgy with these, and made them quite gritty using some on-camera flash and a different setting, but I quite like them as a set.
