This week was super exciting-I was able to purchase a new grill from Sears! I was so busy taking photos of the grills the last time I was there I didn’t pick one out. I went shopping this week with no idea about my purchase. My best friend was with me and helped me pick out this mocha brown grill. Because it matched my deck pillows. Seriously. (I did look up reviews and it had great reviews, too. I’m not completely superficial like that.)
The grill also has a searing burner. Whatever that is. According to the reviews it’s awesome, though, and I can’t wait to try it. (Once I figure out what it is, of course.)
I bought two sets of these green grilling utensils. Because they’re green.
Of course I want to keep my grill pretty so I picked up a new cover.
OK, I’ve been talking about what I purchased and this is about photography. So what did I learn this week? Photography of shiny things is hard! Seriously…very hard! I also learned that your position makes a difference. The same items taken from two different angles can make the difference between a successful photograph and one destined for the recycle bin. Stepping back and taking a photo, then zooming in is going to look different than taking a picture closer to start with. And lighting…lighting is just as important when you’re outside.
