As someone who concentrates on food photography I often have to plan the foods I need for each photo shoot, such as for this fish finger image.
However sometimes it is necessary to make a spontaneous choice. On a recent visit to the local supermarket lobster was on promotion, this was an opportunity too good to miss. So with my purchase of lobster in hand I headed home planning my latest photo shoot, that evening I prepared and took this image.
Today my unplanned decision paid off with the first sale of my lobster image. So my message is don't be afraid to be spontaneous.
