Day 232: The Art of Imitation

I've added this new photograph to Creative Journey in my Photography section, Peppercorn

I found a great image online this week, and wanted to see if I could come close to duplicating it. You know the original photographer is phenomenal when you work for a half hour to get an image that might come close to the original, but falls so far short.

His lighting, the way he tilted the peppercorn, the shadow ... all wonderful! I like my own image, but it is definitely a knock-off. I have so much to learn! Attempting to recreate an experienced photographer's work is an excellent exercise that I'm sure to repeat.
