A funny thing happens in photography or I assume in any creative environment where you set out to do one thing, achieve it, but then you realize that you like something WAY better that is essentially the same setup but from a different perspective. Well that happened to me for my week 12 of my 52 Weeks of Awesomeness project. The theme is household items and because I love to eat, I also really enjoy cooking and so I wanted to illustrate the power of the fire from the stovetop that heats our cookware therefore enabling us to eat. Well, here is my original idea…

Photog Info:

Natural Light
ISO 4000
SS 1/80
Canon 5DII
Sigma 50 f/1.4
Lightroom 3 Beta

Yes, yes we do have Cat and Dog salt and pepper shakers. What do you expect? I live with two veterinarians. Anyways, after taking that shot, I stood up and saw the water bubbling in the pan and I loved all the shapes and lines! This is why I really really enjoy photography. Give two people the same equipment and ask them to photograph an object and you’ll more than likely see two distinctly different pictures because everyone sees things uniquely =) That’s why the Week 7: Perspectives project is super awesome! One object shot at 5 different angles/differences shows you the awesomeness of photography!

Which one do you like better?
