Midnight snacking...Nigella Lawson style...

Newer Older

Nigella (english cooking phenomenom) always nips to the fridge for a snack at the end of her shows...so, what will it be? Cheese, Beer, Chocolate... I chose the apple in the end, it's how I keep my girlish figure!

Strobist Info: Sb-28 with lambency diffuser on 1/32 inside fridge + tiny fridge light! 1/320 sec and aperture of f/9 to lose ambient. I tried to get the feel of the cold fridge light in the middle of the night. Poverty trigger. 5 second timer, and lucky apple toss as I got it first time!

Mildly gutted to find that what i thought was a moment of inspiration has already been done many times (at least 50), and far better on the strobist group already. Darn, gotta think harder. Nothin' new under the sun? Except....

    Look, I've already used my one and only Nigella joke so stop it! Nice capture though :-)

    Try again with a bottle of R Whites Lemonade.

    I didn't notice the apple at first. I hope you bounced it from the inside of your elbow first ?

    Since our meet up I have been experimenting in a dark kitchen aswell much to the bemusement of the neighbours..

    Nice idea..

    Needs a light behind the apple though.

    Just my opinion..

    Nice one. Good to see you starting to try things out. My suggestion for improvement would be to have a snooted flash from camera left aimed at your face.
    Seen in your Strobist set. (?)

    Mr C, I know what you mean, my other flashes are cheapo 283's that dont work with my V2 triggers. they are going back on ebay soon! I may be going down the CLS/Radiopoppers route this summer funds permitting.

    Excellent work!! That is so cool, (and not just because the fridge is open ) :-)

    black silk dressing gown seems to be a requirement for old nigella..

  7. mrsmeep 74 months ago | reply

    and I don't know what snooted or radiopopper mean, but I like them.

    ooer Lydia. I did contemplate doing this topless but I didn't want to stereotype myself and do nothing but glamour and page 3 for the next 10 years before botox and bitterness sets in....
