51 Different subjects to talk about….. This is just number 3 !

When I looked at the list of 51 different photos subjects, I knew there was going to be some subjects I would question. BUT, I like to take the challenge and find out how every subject has some sort of Photographic Interest.

Now the kitchen as a photographic subject, stunned me for a minute, until I tried to come up with photos that were taken in the kitchen. And I said: “YEAH”, WE CAN DO THIS!!!

There are three different types of photography you can do in the kitchen. One would be, obviously, to be the photographer who takes photos of a kitchen for the architect or kitchen designer. This would include photos like this:

Then there seems to be a real art in taking pictures of Food Creations. Chefs can be very artistic, and they take food creations very serious. They will make a plate of food, and then use herbs, or spices to make it a creative photo, and they will try to tie into your appetite. Like this:

Or even something like this:

That’s the point to this type of Kitchen Photography. If you are a chef of your own making, and want to post pictures of your food creations, then this is something you should learn to do, and it usually will involve a good lighting setup so that you can get the food in great detail without shadows and such.

And then the third type of kitchen photography would be to try artistic images. Here is one example:

Notice the lighting on a subject, and the way you can accent the steam. I think lighting on your subject will make you a true artist, if you can learn to see it’s potential in the art. Here are some other great ideas:

Now, when you want to take photos of things to be artistic, I hope this gives you some ideas. Color is a big thing in a kitchen, whether it’s a green thing, or something created, color is a selling item. I can see some of these above photos for sale, to be put on a wall in the kitchen.
