Buy, Borrow or Steal!
I am starting a new segment of posts titled: Buy, Borrow or Steal!
These posts will feature food photography props that I acquire for this project. I’m on a mission to explore all available avenues to find that perfect complimentary piece!
What’s in a name?
Buy refers to $$ that I paid to take an item home, usually big dollars. I would like to think that I can afford some of these items one day.
Borrow is just that. I have been able to sweet talk someone into letting me take home their item for a few days to appear in a few photos.
Steal refers to something I have acquired…for a steal! I have either paid next to nothing for it in comparison to how cool it is, it was a freebie or I found it lying lonely in a gutter somewhere!
Making a debut for this segment is two pieces of flatware. They are a STEAL!
The entrée folk is part of a pair. I pick them up at an antique store for $2.50! I love the little badge outline in the metal of the folk. It’s classy but not over fancy, so it will compliment more dishes.
The jewel cheese knife has been in the family for generations. My mum passed it onto me to use in this project. It’s quite unique, it may take away from the dishes I shoot, but a shallow depth of field should fix that!
