The Imitation Game – #1

All images © Spiral Light Photography unless otherwise noted.

“Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery”, as the old saying goes. One of the assignments from my last photography course was to re-create a photograph of my choosing. Since I love food photography, I chose an image of French fries from a popular food magazine. Below is the original photograph by famed food photographer Vincent Noguchi, followed by my re-creation. It’s not an exact copy, but it is pretty close. I loved this assignment and how my final image turned out. It was a great exercise in looking at all the little details that go into styling an image instead of just the “big picture”.

My version of the original image….not bad!   The best part was getting to eat the fries afterwards!
