Kitchen knives shoot…
From my persecutive I feel as though this is the best shot from the kitchen knives series, I like the composition of the shot along with reflection of the knives in the mirror underneath and the vegetable props in the background make the image a well rounded photo. The focal point is clearly the set of knives.
Not a great shot as some of the veg is in focus on and some is out of focus, the depth of field also begins too far into the first knife losing the level of detail on the chopping board and also within the top half of the first knife, the camera could do with a more birds eye position.
I am unsure to whether the gradient works well or does not work well in this shot, I feel like the kitchen knives would come across superimposed! Remember to get another opinion on the outcome of these shots!
This shot is better than the previous as the exposure seems more controlled however the alignment of the knives could do with tweaking and the knife to the far left could do with propping up to match the reflections of the rest, a minor error however a error that will help contribute in developing the overall aesthetic of the set of knives.
