Facebook Pixel Weekly Photography Challenge – Kitchen objects

Weekly Photography Challenge – Kitchen objects

This week it’s simple! We’d love to see you take some regular, everyday object that’s in your kitchen and photograph it! The challenge is to photograph it in a way that adds interest. That might be through perspective (shooting along a bench as I have done with my orange, below) or using a lamp, torch, led light, flash to add some extra atmosphere to your morning coffee.

Use the #dPSKitchenThings hashtag wherever you post!

Here’s that orange! (It wasn’t actually that tasty, it was off the small orange tree, potted, out the back of my house)

Photographing the espresso below, I used the Sony app to trigger my camera remotely and had a little Aputure MW LED light just out of frame to light up the subject but keep the rest of the scene a little darker.

Great! Where do I upload my photos?

Simply upload your shot into the comments field (look for the little camera icon in the Disqus comments section) and they’ll get embedded for us all to see. Or, if you’d prefer, upload them to your favourite photo-sharing site and leave the link to them.
