Hello! I am looking for a shot of a bowl of chicken soup alongside an apple or sliced apples. This is meant to illustrate an article on food remedies/food as medicine (apple a day, healing powers of chicken soup, etc.). The image would have to be horizontal. Thank you in advance for any help!

Your deadline is too short, no way to take photos and pass them through inspection!

I would caution against viewing the request forum as a constant source of individual custom images.

Just to be clear, as moderators we have no issue with the content requests that this buyer has made. All of which are within the guidines laid out in the sticky thread at the top of this forum.

All that I would say is that this particular request may be a difficult one for contributors to fulfill due to the very short deadline and the current time taken for images to be inspected. But the OP should feel free to keep posting their requests.

Thanks.

I found a few that have chicken soup and an apple. There may be too many other elements in some but I thought they may work on a short deadline

I  know this is vertical but you may be able to crop them horizontal to include just what you need.

Point taken - I just wanted to point out that repeated custom requests with short timelines could show a need for a staff photographer or local freelancer.

Thanks for the feedback. I'm glad it's okay to make individual requests and did review the guidelines before making this one. From now on, however, I'll make sure the turnaround times are considerably longer. In fact, I can extend the deadline for this one to September 12 by adjusting my publishing schedule. Will that be sufficient? I will adjust the subject line accordingly.

Extending to Sept 12 should work for some. Do you prefer a homemade looking soup or the type with the tiny noodles that comes in a box or more like the canned style with thin noodles? Just clarifying for anyone that might want to try this

Good question. I think a homemade-looking soup would be ideal, but I can certainly live with a canned-style one.

shot a couple this morning that are waiting for approval...


You may want to deactivate that and work on the colors so the soup isn't ... grey?
