I wanted to show diversity with different types of snacks. The blurry background gives the photograph a beautiful composition with a warm feeling. The natural light was coming from the left, so I used a white paper sheet to the right to bounce the light back to the food. The natural light allows the food and the environment to be more attractive and catching to the eye.

Award Score: 69 (Value 13, Clarity 13, Composition 18, Style 13, Skill 12)
Photo of the Day Award Category: Wildlife Photography
Photograph Location: Ekuria, Dhaka | Bangladesh

Photographer: Saniar Rahman Rahul (Dhaka, Bangladesh) Registered
Saniar Rahman Rahul was the first winner for ‘Photo of the Month Award’ in June 2010. He was fascinated by seeing his father taking pictures with a camera while his family was in Iraq during his childhood. Later in life, in 1997, while he became very much attached with his profession of ‘graphic design’, Rahul rediscovered the creative side of photography. He started his career as a professional graphic designer in October of 1995, in a pre-press house called Color Scan, which is one of the pioneers in the pre-process printing media in Bangladesh. Afterwards, he moved to Power Point, another pre-press house. Before he finally settled into advertising, he also worked in an IT company called Abtab IT. Moving to advertising from printing media was a big step for him. In 2005, he joined G3, a special wing of Gray Worldwide. Two years later, he moved to Paper Rhyme. Now he is working as the Art Director of Grey World Wide, one of the ten largest advertising agencies in the world.

This simple and beautiful photograph was made with only natural light coming from behind. In order to avoid harsh light because of the middle of the day, I blocked the light with a diffuser allowing a much better quality of light. The onions were laying on a wood table. In the front, I cut in half one of the onions in order to show the details and perfection of the nature.
