Artist's Description

How would you know Sweet,
If you didn’t know Sour…
How could you cherish one…
Without knowing the other…
There is not one alone,
They only exist because of each other…

Just like Love, Happyness, Content… :c)


For the Photography 101 Group:

This is one of the few pictures I actually planne dout. I had searched for a spot with contrasting, and wild colours, which would still “support” the lemon I had. It was for a photography competition with the theme “Sweet & Sour” – I was thinking long about it and everything came to my mind, cats, dogs, a happy child vs. a sad child – that at the end I opted to go as simple as possible. I chose my props (Lemon, Pralines) and then I chose the spot (a planted traffic island).

Of course, I wanted to have the flowers in the background, as well as the chocolate and the lemon visible.
I wanted the background blurry and soft, yet still distinguishable as flowers.
I photogrpahed with my Canon EOS 33 and a ISO 200 Film. I used focal length of about 50mm and walked in closely to fit the Lemon and Pralines into a large part of the picture. With an F-stop of about 4.0 (the farthest my Lense would go), I snapped that picture – giving me the flowers still distinguishable even if soft (had I used or had an 2.8 on that lense, one probably would only have seen colourful mash in the background) – the lemon and pralines I had nice and in focus :)
