Cheese, crackers, and a hooded snacker

Thiophene_ Guy

This is my first whack at Utata's Iron photographer 204, which requires three elements:

1 - a hood (in reflection)
2 - something on a stick (cheese)
3 - moody color (you be the judge)

Color was enhanced with a grad filter in lightroom, dimming the cheerfully white mug, and the Portra 160VC preset in DXO filmpack.

Optical trick:
Spoon curvature made an inverted reflection from the side opposite the viewer, allowing a photo without the camera in frame. Note the reflection of the mug for an example in frame. Marmalade removed extraneous details from the impromptu mirror.
