Breakfast Prep

I went on a photo walk with Armando Martinez of Pixel Training this past weekend in downtown Denver. It has been a while since I’ve done a photo walk downtown and gave me a chance to explore the creative side with my camera without my tripod. It took me a while to find my muse, but finally was able to free up my mind and find some creative images within the textures and shadows of the city early morning.

Finishing up the photo walk we walked by a few restaurants and business prepping for the day. Glancing through one of the restaurant windows I captured this scene, cooks prepping for the breakfast service and tables anxiously awaiting the arrival of their first customers.

  • This actually makes me hungry… weird. Nice selective focus, sharp and clear on the glasses. Well composed.

  • Very cool Rick! I’m with Adam, love the selective focus you used here. Great work!

  • Edith Levy

    Lovely shot Rick. I agree the selective focus is marvelous.

  • Very nice! Great shallow DOF.

  • Cool shot Rick! The dark, warm tones set a welcoming mood.

  • Thanks for the shout out Rick. I had fun.

  • The selective focus works very well, but I think I would have moved the salt and pepper pots sightly to one side so the two wine glasses could be fully seen. The warm tones, I agree with others, suit this so well.

    • Yea, I wish I could have moved the salt and pepper, but I took this shot through a window.
