Artist's Description

A simple and minamilist view of sugar cubes.

I took this shot as part of a project I did on my favourite things. I wanted to create something that would also stand alone as an image without being part of the project, so it needed to have some impact and interest.

I am a bit of a contrast fan so a black background against the stark white of the sugar was a must. This was acheived simply by arranging the lumps on a piece of black card. I fiddled around with the placing of the cubes and even sprinkled some grains of sugar on the card to try and get the right shot. The grains made things a little too busy for my taste and took something away from the contrast.

The whole thing was done in my studio, which consists of a desk in my bedroom and the sun shining through a window. I used a tripod to keep the image sharp and a piece of white paper to reflect a little of the light back onto the cubes to soften the shadows.

I hope you enjoy it
