Antique Wooden Bowl with Popcorn-Black and White Wednesday

All packed and ready to go away for a week in Savannah! With some time to spare, I threw a linen cloth on my dining table, poured some popcorn kernels in my favorite old wooden bowl, added a  rustic- carved wooden scoop and began to shooting handheld, my camera on the monochrome setting.  Of the six or seven shots, I chose this one to post for  Black and White Wednesday created and hosted by Susan of The Well-Seasoned Cook.

No special filter this time-only levels and curves adjusted in post processing.

    I love the textures in this photo. It's funny how throwing things together sometimes ends up with the best pictures. This one is great.

    This only goes to show that food photography doesn't always have to be colorful, planned or choreographed. Impromptu photos like this emanates simplicity and honesty 🙂

    Taste and Tell-sometimes the harder I try, the worse the photo looks. I'm happy when I can pull off a spur of the moment one. Thanks.Karen-thanks, impulse sometimes works!
