A couple of days ago you got to
see the ingredients. Now we have the results!
Food is a tricky thing to photograph. Especially
something like chicken salad. It has the very real
potential to come out looking like... well,
something you really do not want to eat.
In examining my favorite cookbooks, I have found that
lighting and garnish both play a major role in
making formless things interesting and appetizing.
In the not too distant future I will be starting a new project, a cookbook, with a friend who owns a great restaurant downtown. I have to practice because his food is so good I really want to do it justice!
