[sch]food photography: les frootloops
March 4, 2010 § 6 Comments
Part of the series of photographs I had to produce for my final presentation.
The idea behind:
Even when we can afford to dine like kings in this day and age, many times we still pick the empty calories.
Perhaps we don’t always want what’s good for us. In many areas of our lives.
It was quite a fun photoshoot with last-minute hunting for white glue (milk), and spray painting the utensils in my corridor. Did regret not paying better attention to my etiquette lessons in SMU. For the life of me, I couldn’t recall if the dessert fork was placed on the left or top. But in the end, it didn’t matter anyway because Dessert Fork was downgraded from a cameo to zero screen-time. Sorry, Small Fork.

[ piecing the frootloops together with handy UHU glue and tweezers took a LONG time. Thank God I had help with picking out the perfect pieces. The not-so-perfect ones? We ate them all!]
[ The set up. The green shrub came from my parent’s pot jungle in our corridor, while the napkin was a top of mine. Amazing what you can find rummaging around the house.]
