Rainbow of Colors at the Farmers Market

I recently bought a fun little program called Diptic and decided to give it a spin by using the photos from my recent Fresh Wednesday farmers market post. The result is this rainbow of produce. I kind of like it. What do you think?

Fresh Wednesday

Downtown Provo recently started Fresh Wednesdays, which is a produce-only farmers market on Center Street in the middle of Downtown Provo. I’ve been wanting a market like this for a long time.

Food Photography

Our most recent assignment was to make a self-promotional piece for whatever type of photography we want to go into professionally.
