Food is a subject that can be photographed in a lot of different ways, but to be able to do it in an everyday setting without studio lights and styling can be difficult. The finalists we've chosen for this theme used techniques to make the food look interesting and appealing in their photos.
To see all of the photography competition entries, head to the album on the Photoh Facebook page here.
The finalists this fortnight are:
Gavin Rudge, Adelaide
Colour is a key element in food photography and Gavin's image is eye-catching and makes you want to take a closer look.
Rosemary Mahony Featherstone, Brisbane
The simplicity of this photo is the beauty of it, with the raw quality of the blueberries enhanced by the minimal styling.
Lyn Dwyer, Melbourne
The balanced light in this image has created a glisten on the juice's frothy surface and on the cucumber, which makes it appear fresh and appetising.
Lyn Collins, Melbourne
The muted colours and shallow aperture in Lyn's photo when combined with the wooden bench make the apples appear wholesome and healthy.
Fiona Childs, Perth
By including a little girl interacting with her ice cream cone in her photo, Fiona has demonstrated how the lifestyle genre can be used in food photography. It has a strong sense of colour and whimsy.
Ann Hodgson, Sydney
Strong light and macro techniques have been used by Ann to highlight the detail in the kiwi fruit right out to the furry edges. It's truly stunning to look at.
The winner this fortnight is...Lyn Dwyer from Melbourne! Congratulations, you have won a $100 JB Hifi voucher!
And in second place we have...Ann Hodgson from Sydney, who has won a $50 JB Hifi voucher.
The theme for the next challenge is minimalism photography, which is all about trying to tell a story with as little visual distraction as possible. Students will be learning how to shoot simple subjects with very little in the frame and the power this brings to an image.
Entries will open on Saturday the 8th April and close on Thursday the 20th April at midnight AEST.
To enter, simply post your photo on the Photoh Facebook wall stating your city. First prize is a $100 JB Hifi voucher and second prize is a $50 JB Hifi voucher.
