Propping for a Thanksgiving photo session

Today we spent our time in the studio sifting through our collection of country-type cooking props to select some for the look we want to achieve in our Thanksgiving photo session. While we had the props out, I photographed some of them in their own right. We maintain a large collection of food related props because we do so much food photography.

The look we were going for in our Thanksgiving Day shoot is more casual country than polished traditional so we will be using props and lighting techniques that complement this look.

These photos were taken with the Nikon D750 and Nikon 60mm macro lens. Lighting was a mix of daylight -- which accounts for the slight bluish tint -- and one tungsten lamp with a 1/4 color correcting CTB gel on it to add some warm tones here and there in the scenes. These shots are pretty much straight from the camera.
