The RA Photoclub held a food photography workshop on the weekend and I attended primarily to expand my still life skills. As I am not very good at this genre it was useful to acquaint myself with the lighting setups. As can be seen, the still life setups were varied and no one person could claim they were the artist as it was very much a collaborative effort.

With apologies to Steichen...

These are really nice, Abigail. I like still life, especially with moody light, but the problem I have is that it takes a lot of setting up to get it just right and there are times I just don't have the patience, hence why I fall back on landscape and street photography.....nothing to set up per say smile

Yup, you have just described me also.  Setup takes way longer than taking the image.

Lovely series! 
+1 Love the compositions, lighting, colors & clarity!

ps.....So much to do, with so little time, that I'm going to be out of touch on PB, pretty much, until after the New Year....
Have a great time with your friends & family, during this special season!

I lay no claim to the compositions other than the pepper in the bowl but I can at least say the camera angles are mine.  Glad you enjoyed them😃
