What you see....

I’d made some really good plum chutney the other day, and wanted to take a picture to post on a food group. I poured it into a pretty bowl, spread out a cloth that would compliment the colour, and started shooting. I took seven pictures- all were well composed, perfectly exposed and well lit, but none of them came close to capturing the colour and luminosity of the dish.
On an impulse, I decided to go against everything I have learnt, and shot against the light. The photograph was perfect.
Sometimes, the smallest shift in perspective, ends up changing everything.

This is the fourth year that I am going to be a part of NaBloWriM. The Plan is to elaborate (in 100 words) on a quote that touched my heart- let's see how far this takes me. If I can tie it in with the writing prompt, so much the better!

I break all sorts of photography rules and many times get my best shots that way! Nice one Natasha...

Natasha - That really is stunning!! And if a little rule-breaking got you the shot you wanted, well, why not?
