Kitchen Light

Kitchen Light  |  The Fresh Exchange

The spaces around us can change our daily patterns, mood, and even change the way we see something as simple as breakfast. Our little kitchen is changing the way we see our daily life and even the smallest details of our space. The beauty of light is that it can tell a story, show the flavor and depth of an item, and even hide or show flaws. Light is an amazing thing and one that very commonly can be overlooked. The more we are exploring food photography and styling we are beginning to see that light can dictate every bit of feeling in a photo. I am trying to challenge myself to find the perfect light that feels natural, beautiful, and full of life, even in the darkest parts of the day. Light makes all the difference.

Hope your week is off to a good start. We have been hosting Mike’s family and enjoying this special time together, but are back in the office full time tomorrow!
