10 Shrimp Supper
This striking image is brilliantly dynamic. The curving lines of the prawns and asparagus carry your eye around the plate, while the chopsticks intersect with the background in a more abrupt manner. While there’s a lot of black in the shot – the plate, the background, the chopstick trim – the textures have been brought out with careful lighting. When you think more about the food it’s not really a meal as such, but the photo gives the impression of fine dining!
