If you haven't had the chance to swing by and take a look at [In]Complete Magazine, you really ought to. Founder and Editor in Chief, Macey Snelson, had a vision about publishing her own magazine and the short of the story is that an editor essentially told her, "Macey, you need to do this!" Well...she did. As part of her new adventure I get a call from time to time to contribute photography, and I hope down the road, some written material as well. I don't want to ruin the fun but I will say that I was asked to photograph lemons, and these are my two favorites. I love shooting food so it was a no-brainer for me. I submitted several images, some very aggressive while others were light and fun, and frankly reminded me a little too much of summer, which is great because today nearly every kid in the valley is off school because of a snow day.
The light reflected from the snow coming in from a south facing window was all the light I needed for the lemons in the bowl, while a single flashgun placed near level with the lemons provided light for the image I call "Slaughtered Lemon" - that was really fun to set up! Well, it's time to enjoy the snow with my kids, until next time.
