Well Balanced Diet

  • A waist is a terrible thing to mind.

    Chocolate candy, donuts, and a cupcake. Sounds like breakfast to me!

    In Well Balanced Diet, I present these nutritional cornerstones carefully arrayed on a balance beam - poised and waiting for the first bite.

  • Given the acrobatic nature of this delicious display, I lit the scene as if it were on a stage. Can’t you just hear the drumroll as the cupcake was placed on top?

    Well Balanced Diet has the warm glow of a traditional still life image, one that - aside from the modern subject matter - would be right at home with works of the Dutch Masters 400 years ago. In particular notice the sharpness of the background shadows and the subtle gradation of the background from dark on the edges to light in the center.
