A little extra work pays of

posted on 16th of december, 2009

I have not been uploading as much as I would like lately.
But I did put some extra work in the pictures I made.
And the extra work did pay of!
Only two weeks after uploading I had my first level 2 image. Here it is, my manipulated food!

Hope the rest of the series will also do well.
I put quite some time brainstorming, a little time to put it together,
a few seconds pushing the release and a bit of time processing.
In the end I'm quite proud of the result.
I really pays of to plan your shooting, and to think out of the box.

thanks for your comments. And indeed I suspect that getting an editors choice helped a lot! Over 700 views in two weeks. Hopefully the image got stored in some lightboxes.

Besides genetic alteration of food, they also bring to mind body modification.

About me

I\'m a biologist. I used to travel a lot shooting lots of pictures. I was always disappointed with the results until I decided to start a photography course. Now in my 4th and last year I\'m getting more and more pleased with the result. Slowly I\'m getting there. I started uploading stock to get an extra challenge but it soon became an addiction.

Overpelt, BE
