Hey guys! A last minute weekend post. I had a super busy weekend, mostly granola bar related. It was completely exhausting but so much fun. I played around for hours with photographing the bars and ingredients. It is definitely going to take me awhile to get decent at taking food photos. Chris helped give me an overview of how to use his camera and I just went at it. I started outside with natural light, but found it was a little harsh. I encountered some not-so-great shadows, but still got some shots I was happy with for my first go at this. My neighbor (who is a professional photographer) came out while I was taking photos asking what I was doing, etc. He let me come over today while he had his studio lighting and backdrops set up. This gave me a much more stable environment to shoot in. He set up the lights for me but I was on my own with the camera. Then later today Chris helped teach me how to edit photos in Lightroom. So much to learn!!

If the photos make you hungry for some yummy granola goodness, then I have done my job.

More ota. info. to come later this week, and probably a few more pics. Check back soon!

Off to bed...

The one's in the grass are my favorites! I was only expecting pics of finished bars but I love the shots with the ingredients on the platter, very artsy! They look so healthy and natural, yummmm!

first of all, i would buy them just because of the fun name and fresh graphics! nice shots - it would be cool to create an animation with a series of photos showing them first in an organic design as all the seperate ingredients and then mold them into your bars. keep having fun - they look good!
