Le Croissant: A Study in Flakiness
I was eating breakfast the other morning and half way through a croissant and I noticed how beautiful the light was on the croissant. As I continued to eat it (It was very good after all!) I wondered if I could capture the light, flakiness of a croissant with the camera. So I took the remaining croissant and placed it closer to the window and began to shoot. I took quite a few shots, and these are the one that demonstrate the true texture and feeling of a perfect croissant. Three of these images are unprocessed, straight out of the camera. There’s no accounting for a great (tasty) subject and beautiful light. Let me know what you think.
And yes, I did eat it after the photo shoot. A slice of Emmental cheese, a slice of ham (Jambon), butter, and breakfast was complete!
