322-2020 – Lemon Mold


Today’s photo of the day, part of “a photo a day challenge 2020”, is a studio shot of a lemon with green mold on it. Please remember, if your bread, lemon, apple jam tomato sauce etc has any amount of mold on it, don’t just remove the mold layer and continue using that product, because a cancerous substances called aflatoxins already contaminated your food.

319-2020 – Heineken


Today’s photo of the day, part of “a photo a day challenge 2020”, is of a can of Heineken on a black background. This is my wife’s favourite lager beer, but not my favourite subject to photograph in my studio. Because of the shiny surface, it’s very easy to get reflections you don’t want.

Below is a quick animation I created with ezgif.com. How to Add Animated GIF Images in WordPress in one easy step.

274-2020 – Panda Bear Plush Toy


Today’s photo of the day, part of “a photo a day challenge 2020”, is about my daughter’s Panda Bear Plush Toy on a black background. This images started with a black background and a white surface made of polystyrene. I was intrigued by the contrast and challenged myself to capture a black and white object in this environment. If you look closely in the toy’s eyes you can see where I got the lighting setup idea. Three-point lighting setup In order to achieve this setup I needed 3 lights. I had the back light (Elinchrom D-lite 400 flash head with […]

272-2020 – Passion Fruit


Today’s photo of the day, part of “a photo a day challenge 2020”, is of a passion fruit cut in half on a black background. Know when to stop shooting! This is the first shot out of 3 in total. After the 3rd shot, I decided that the first image will suffice, so I stopped shooting. I took the card out of the camera and went upstairs and started editing on Adobe Lightroom Classic. I imported the 3 images and gave the first image 3 stars. Usually, when I have more images, this star rating helps me sort out the […]

265-2020 – Silver Metal Whistle


Today’s photo of the day, part of “a photo a day challenge 2020”, is about a silver metal blowing whistle. In order to take this image I used my iPhone 11 Pro a piece of white tissue on the kitchen table using the available light. The edit was done in Lightroom mobile, white balance, cropping and masking the object with my finger to get the white background. I have to admit that is not perfect, but it’s amazing what can be done these days on a smartphone. Like, comment & share! 2 likes

060-2020 – Raisins


Today’s photo of the day, part of “a photo a day challenge 2020”, is about a bunch of raisins lined up on a table. If I don’t have a wedding or a portrait session lined up, I like to set up my lights, roll down a background and start shooting water splashes or various products. Today was very difficult to choose the photo of the day because I had a few other good images that could easily be chosen to be the photo of the day. Which one is your favourite image?
