Lunchtime Photo Shoot

This was actually taken before yesterday's photo of the day. (yeah, I'm a little out of order :) Before I go out on a job I like to experiment a little with different compositions and lighting. This was an especially important thing this time since I was not using my trusty AE-1. I would not trade my AE-1 for anything, but professional food photography is definitely in the realm of the medium format camera with an interchangeable Polaroid back, or a good digital camera. Without the immediate feedback it is just too hit or miss to capture the wide range of colors and textures.

Incidentally, I have some very kind friends who attended our wedding to thank for this shot. The extremely cool plate is part of a wedding gift.
