A few months back if someone would have told me to click a black and white photo of food, I would have raised my eyebrows, wondering why on earth would I remove those beautiful colors from food. And now, I absolutely enjoy the black and white shade! Having said this, not every kind of food will look nice in B&W. I think the main objective is to include texture and play with the light so that it can enhance the object.

Pumpkins have always been my all-time favorite and no matter the different ways that Mom would cook it, it was always a delicious meal. For a kid who never enjoyed food, even something as simple as a boiled mashed pumpkin with some hot white rice would bring a smile on my face and I would finish the whole plate without any fuss!
