This past week I had the distinct pleasure of doing a “Food Photography” shoot for Old Town Distillery. It was a blast. The owners Shonna Kempter and her husband Jeremy have done an amazing job with not just the décor and atmosphere but the food is simply delicious as well. Chef Don presented me with one mouth watering dish after another and it was my job to bring out the crispy, sweet, tangy, flavorful dishes visually. When working on a Macro scale, getting up close and personal is key and in order to do so you need good light, minimal flash and a very steady hand (or tripod). Don’t be afraid to open up so that you can capture the savory goodness.2015 Project 52 – Week 15 - Macro

I’d love to have you join me for my Project 52, even if it is only for a month or sporadically throughout the year. Every month, I will provide a list of weekly prompts for you to use to inspire your weekly photos.  All you have to do is use the hash tag #jdvbymproject52 when posting your weekly photo on Instagram or Facebook, and you can join in the fun!  And I am going to be following along with these prompts too, so be sure to follow me on Instagram or Facebook as I complete my first 52 week photography project!

Here is a peek at the prompts for the next four weeks:

april 20th | macro

april 27th | new

may 4th| sunset

may 11th| celebration

The weeks will go Monday to Sunday. It is okay if you miss a week or are off by a few days. Just pick back up where you left off! As reminder, if you would like these prompts to be emailed right to your inbox every month, be sure to subscribe to my blog!
