I definitely stood in the street for this one, which caused Heather much distress.

Massive donuts piled with toppings from an airstream trailer in Austin, Tx.

I mentioned in a prior post how I initially edited these to look much brighter, when I still wanted to force this ‘texas’ look look I was envisioning. With some time and distance, I came to embrace this more overcast look. The final image of closeup still looked good bright, though, so I left it that way. I cannot remember if we staged what was on the fork or if that’s just what heather happened to pull up. I tend to prefer going with what’s naturally happening rather than fiddling with it too much. I had to develop that skill of just letting it be what it was when I wanted to take photos and my non-photographer friends just wanted to eat.
