Home Baking (The Conclusion)

You’ll probably prefer the coloured version of this but …



  1. … I thought I’d give mono a go. Unsurprisingly I much preferred the colour version, but as I was playing with the tint I had some kind of flashback which I didn’t really understand except it had something to do with a particular UK brand of flour. After a bit of online research I think I now understand.

    On a different note this image has triggered an idea for a kind of self portrait, but will I ever get round to it?

  2. Here, the negative space works really well. Are you doing a series for the museum? Have you shown them the shots? I find the monochrome working with this particular tint very effective. As to the self-portrait – are you thinking of applying for a post at the museum or in a bakery?!!

    • Thank you John. Well I will confess that I have actually dared to think about showing them the images, with a view to donating them. But I have also wondered as to how I could be so conceited/deluded.

      The answer to your last question is a “no”, but I could do with borrowing some props!

      • I think that your subjects would be delighted with a print and if you play your cards right it might earn you a privilege or two. It is unlikely that one of your subjects is going to be a FRPS and pick holes in your gift!

  3. This monochromatic toning suits this style of image perfectly. I like the fact it doesn’t look too much like a museum and that coupled with the toning produces a period style image.

  4. great monochrome and wonderful lighting. Early morning baking or late afternoon? don’t know and does not matter. “I’ve done this and now onto the next chore”
    It’s great and speaks of home life and work well done.

  5. More of that Vermeer light — even without the color it works very well — though I rather miss the blue of the plate. ;-) I hope you did donate the images — with Rex — I’m sure they would be delighted.
