Kitchenography: The Art Of Kitchen Photography

"you don’t have to travel too far afield to encounter worthy subject matter, it now occurs to me you don’t even have to leave your home! Take your kitchen (or mine) for example: here is to be found fruits & vegetables, glassware, cutlery, pots & pans, things in bottles, etc., all kinds of good stuff. If you really get into this, you could take your (hand-held) camera to the farmer’s market or grocery store and take external shots (as I did with several of these). Certain vegetables (and fruits) seem to lend themselves to this sort of thing." Read the entire article here: Kitchenography: The Art Of Kitchen Photography

Red Cabbage

"Consider this as a challenge or assignment: open your refrigerator and see how many items could work as subject matter (do enough of this and you’ll never look at certain fruits and / or vegetables the same way!). Additionally, some vegetables, if they’ve been around for awhile (or not stored properly), can develop roots or new sprouts. Pattern possibilities abound."

Today’s Takeaway:

1) If you can see it, you can photograph it.
2) It ain’t the camera, it’s the eyeball / brain (imagination) behind it.

Gitzo tripod for sale

please contact Jim if you are interested...

Hi Lisa,

I'm passing this on to local friends.

Because I'm a Bogen/Gitzo dealer I can get a personal purchase every couple years.  I've been using the Gitzo 3530LSV for a few years.  Last year I bought the latest model of the same pod just because I can and planned to sell my old one.  Still using the old one as it's just as good but figured I might as well put it into use.  New one goes for over $900.   I have the box and anything that came with it like the accessory video bowl as well.

It shows signs of use for sure but only cosmetic and works perfectly.

It's also customized with a disk under the legs that keep them from folding under the pod when you fold and lift over your shoulder etc.  I wouldn't use one without this mod.  It can easily be removed though if someone doesn't want it.  It also is a safety so even if the top plate came loose it wouldn't go anywhere.

I'd like to get $500 for it.  If you know anyone that might want one I'm always glad to do local instead of online.  Great pod.  I just put in my newsletter which is local too but first come first served for sure. 

Best,
Jim
