Shooting Bread for Its Texture

When I took my camera with me to the Farmer’s Market a couple of weeks ago, I took the normal shots of all the veggies and fresh produce. It was starting to get crowded, so it was time to move one.

I spotted some bread samples and asked if I could take some photos. The vendor looked at me like I was a bit crazy (which is pretty normal for Santa Fe πŸ™‚ ), and said that I could.

As I Β looked through my macro lens, I could see the great textures of the bread, the different shapes of the samples, and the muted color palate. I thought I had the makings for my type of photo.

And this is what I got. I really do like the textures of the breadΒ and how the samples fill up a lot of the vertical space of the photo, and that the focus is lower in the photo.
