Mass Observation Project: Eating

Fever Ray - I'm Not Done [youtube.com]

At the very end of the list of instructions for this MOP, Jon suggested to ‘utensils’ ; and being the literal guy I am, I figured this might be somewhat fitting. I've been on a strange level of lack of creativity lately - let it be for all the real work I've been doing or whatever else has been going on, but I have managed to use a technique I learned of how to not use a flash in very low light and not have any noise in the image… Basically it entails stacking about 10-15 versions of the exact same shot. So to make a long story short, this and my next post are going to present said technique. Cheers.

If you are one of those who is still confused about the ‘MOP’ you can read up on it here [photoblog.com].

Then, go check out the greater versions of the MOP here [photoblog.com].

very metallic looking fork against the foody greasy background; what's already been eaten is is good too

Stacking images? Something else to learn I suppose...I like your take on the MOP. Eating also [u][i][b]always[/b][/i][/u] leads to dirty dishes....

Nice shot and like others I'm intrigued by the stacking technique..

what ever it was on your plate it looked good. Every body hits a blank zone once in a while. But now you just have to think outside of the box now to get different ideas or try to go on a short vacation!

I'm curious about this technique, which works very well, by the looks of it.

Whoa, this is excellent, Mike!! I would love to learn that technique.
...and a really cool song too.

sad view - nothing to eat...

I really like it Mike. I don't know exactly what "stacking 10-15 versions of the exact same shot" means but it sounds difficult and time consuming. It's hard to believe you didn't use a flash here. Wow.
