NOVEMBER – ICE CREAM

DEFINITION

While photographing ice cream might seem simple at first thought, the reality is a little different. A food with many color variations that can make mixing and matching and good light and depth capturing tricky for the photographer, it also has the challenging habit of melting if you’re not fast enough!

SHOES

Definition – a protective covering for the foot, with a bottom part composed of a thick leather or plastic sole, and often a thicker heel, and a softer upper part made of leather or synthetic material. Shoes generally do not extend above the ankle as opposed to boots, which do.

So to kick-off 2020 themes – get out your best shoes or any shoes (bearing the definition above in mind), and using one of many shooting techniques to show them off – shallow depth of field, still life, action, lighting or whichever you chose. Remember a strong, creative composition is important.
