Experimenting with photos

I have been thinking about how I would like my work to be photographed. I would like it to be contextualised more. I look at the photos in cookery books and I see exactly what I want. If you can have a look at Jonathan Lovekin's photos in Nigel Slaters books. The Kitchen Diaries has just the sort of moody inviting pictures that I want.
I don't know how to do it myself but I am certainly aspiring to a new look as I need some new images.
Off to make some rustic shelves now with raclaimed floor boards. DIY is not my strong point so here goes.


  1. I really like this idea. I may try a few myself. These look fab. I do think that paring knife looks a bit out of place in the first one though. Your pots look great in these surroundings, just as they are meant to .

  2. Snap as to weekend projects Margaret. I need to dismantle a bookcase for mine though.

  3. hey great idea, love the strong sunlight and rustic look..

  4. Margaret, are those some sort of plum?
