Food is the staple of life, but have you ever gotten up close to what we eat? It’s quite interesting to look at various food in macro form.

Put all your eggs in one basket, because they look good together.

While blueberries look quite rustic on the outside, they are juicy and delicious on the inside.

I found the perfect fruit basket at the thrift store recently and decided to take some pictures of bananas with it, making it look quite enticing.

I love fruit and raspberries are some of my favorite. I wanted to show off the bright red color of this raspberry with a close up shot. You can see all the small detail and hairs of this raspberry.

This blackberry is actually a dark purple color. Mexico is the world leader in growing blackberries.

I love baking brownies with this delicious milk chocolate, topping the brownies with fresh raspberries and blackberries and a small scoop of ice-cream is a truly amazing dessert

As I was experimenting with my macro lens today, I got the idea of take pictures of fruits, spices, and my favorite book.

When you look at cinnamon up close, it’s quite rugged and looks almost torn like a rug, but under that curled brown leaf is a delicious treat that goes on a lot of foods.

Apples and books often go hand in hand, which is why I got the idea of this picture today.

A heart shaped page, perhaps the worlds most romantic bookmark.

Hot spicy love

Peppers are the spice of life, they can be attributed to heat, color, taste, and shape. These red peppers fit perfectly in my heart shape and presents a fairly spice valentines day look.

Yellow peppers are some of the most common in the world, but as you see in the grocery store, each pepper can be quite different in size and shape.

What makes peppers so great for photographing is the almost waxy exterior that makes them really shine and pop out in the right light. I really enjoy comparison photos as well because you can see these peppers also change color gradually. Amazing!

With a stem longer than the body, this orange pepper caught my eye in the market, just begging to be captured. While there isn’t smooth edges like the previous two peppers, this one has a beautiful hint of reds and orange that make it shine.

Crazy about kale

I’ve taken a liking to food photography recently, since it’s very important in our lives, why not document the things that provide us sustenance?

Title: Kale leaf

Camera: NIKON D80
Lens: 24-70mm f/2.8


Looking closer at Kale, we find it has a rather veiny appearance just like humans. However these veins are purely green and rather delicious!

I was in a ranch market when this purple Kale caught my eye instantly, a very unique vegetable that I hadn’t really seen before and since purple is my favorite color, I knew it was calling me.

This upclose picture of the purple Kale shows that much like green Kale, it has a very complex vein system however the leaves are much longer and wider than normal.

Coffee love

Since I love coffee so much, I thought it was about time I actually photograph some coffee beans in many different ways. Honestly, commercials don’t usually grab our attention, but when there are coffee beans falling from the sky, that’s what we always remember. I hope ya’ll enjoy this coffee themed updated.
