Today’s featured photo is, you guessed it, a bowl of mini frosted shredded wheat cereal. I had cravings over the summer for the Cinnamon Streusel Mini Wheats, and since I often do that, decided to immortalize that nutrition fad with a photo session. This time I chose a white ceramic bowl, slightly cracked and a white background, so that the colorful cereal would pop out. White on white can be tricky, so I carefully positioned the main light to illuminate the rim of the bowl while creating a nice gradient on the background and front of the bowl. There are versions of this shot with milk and spoon, which are a far easier sale, of course, but I always had a soft spot for the graphic purity of this one.
