Kale And Apple Salad

Trying to apply some of the things I've learnt about food photography, I used this nutritious salad to do so. Everything from how to plate the food - not too much, and mainly in the centre so that the edges of the plate can act as a frame - to using window light or photographing raw ingredients.Well, I'm still learning. None of these shots is particularly original or creative, and I'm not very good at staging a 'scene' on a table with a ton of paraphernalia, so I tend to focus on close-ups of the food to convey texture. I also shot the dish from different angles to see which worked best. Not perfect but I'm reasonably pleased with this effort and I will continue to practice.Colour and contrast is obviously important, and this salad had plenty of colour. Kale and broccoli are two of the best foods you can possibly put into a human body, and combining them with apple and a honey, mustard and tomato puree dressing made it absolutely delicious. Add in some red cabbage and tomato and you've got nature's medicine. Kale is a little bitter on its own so sweetening it up helps to make it palatable.All of these shots were made with the EM5 and the Olympus 60mm F/2.8.
