I tried to think of what new ways I could look at a fork. I was left pretty uninspired until I saw the cup of plastic utensils still left out from our New Year’s Eve party. There was a candle burning on the other side of the cup and seeing the light flickering through the clear plastic gave me an idea. I positioned the cups of forks, spoons, and knives directly under the main overhead light on our main workspace in our kitchen and placed a speedflash with an amber filter behind and to the right. This is what came out.
