Weekly Photo Challenge: on the table

It is monday and that means it is time for a new Weekly Photo Challenge! This week’s challenge will make you stand up on your chair in your kitchen, the restaurants you go to and at family dinners. You will certainly turn some heads!

For some examples I looked on the instagram profile of one of my favorite Phoneographers: Ditut

Rules:
You have one week (up to and including saturday) to send in your pictures. Simply paste a copy of the URL in a comment to this post.
You can either use your DSLR camera or your telephone.
Use your imagination.
I will mention all entries in sunday’s post and the nicest ones will be displayed in full size with my own photographs.

Tips:
Get up high for a birds-view of your table.
To create a feel for the viewer to be where the picture is taken you can include the people around the table or maybe just their hands.
Details: Napkins, cutlery, glasses, tablecloth..
Color: The success to a beautiful #onthetable photograph is the contrast and colors used in the frame. A green salad looks better on a white table then a green table cloth.
Activities. I don’t only eat at my table, I write, play, cook, drink, talk.. There is more than just food.
Light is everything. Photograph at daytime rather then at night. Especially food really doesn’t photograph well in poor lighting. Avoid direct sunlight.
Look on the internet for some inspiration.

Have fun everyone, I am looking forward to see your entries. Everyone is welcome to join.
