This photo was created for a Halloween special post for my blog. I wanted something orange and simple and a pumpkin soup seemed like the best choice. It’s a photo taken from top. I used a ladder to be able to be high enough and take the photo from the angle I wanted. I used a 24-70mm Zoom lens because I wanted the detail to show and to make the soup appealing and tasty to the eye and to the taste. I have shoot the photo on my studio table, with a south facing window that allowed plenty of natural light, after all I always shoot my photos with natural light.
