Food for Thought
What do you see?? How was this picture photographed?
What do you see if this photo?
So what or how is he doing his photography? What if I told you that all of his props are food. The above picture where it shows him working is entirely made out of meat. In fact it is mostly bacon.
The photographer/artist is Carl Warner and he has found a unique way to make food into art that will last a long time. It takes several days to prepare for a shoot and then a morning at the market to buy all of the fresh ingredients. Most of his art has to be done in one to two days top, otherwise it spoils.
Now go back to the top two pictures and see if you can guess what foods he used to create the props for his photos? Can you think of other foods that he could have used? What foods would you think would be the most versatile?
By the way, here is the finished "meat" photo.
