For this week’s homework, I ask you to think about the idea of texture in food, and how does one capture texture in a photograph. The key to communicating texture in photography is to pay careful attention to detail. For the homework, you get to practice taking a photograph and uploading it to Instagram. For example, look at the photograph by contemporary photographer Olivier Richon and note how it gives you a sense of the texture of an egg, an object that we’ll be thinking about a lot this semester. Take a food-related photo (something you made or saw), and upload your photo to Instagram with a short 150-character caption describing the texture of your food item.

If you do NOT want to use Instagram, please post your photo here on the OpenLab and write a 100-word description.
