Photograph what you’re given…

…and I was given chopping boards. Commercial photography is varied to say the least. These were nice ones, mind you: Bamboo with silicon rubber feet so they don’t slip while you are using them. Photographing them was fun as I could play with bringing out the texture of the material and the angle of shot enabled me to change the perspective of the boards. But the best bit was using a few sample pieces of wallpaper that the local hardware store ‘donated’ (all above board, I assure you!)

The wallpaper formed a great backdrop for the subject matter and a few well chosen props to set the scene provided additional interest. Here are a few of the results:
