Last week Jackie and I got together, she set the table and chose the props, I photographed the food. These are the results.
Our garden is in high gear and the tomatoes are getting bigger every day. I cannot wait to eat these babies! In the meantime, a photo will suffice.
A few studies of food from this past weekend.
Romaine, Porterhouse and Blueberry Crisp
Local, fresh, friendly and fantastic. How is that for alliteration? Derek and Amanda are not only amazing people with an amazing concept they are fantastic hosts.
They run a farm to fork mobile kitchen focusing on local and sustainable food. Everything they serve on is compostable plates and they even use green cleaning products.
The Washington Post recently did a story on them which you can read here.
I travelled to Marshall Va last week to photograph them in their garden and mobile kitchen. Here are the results.
While in Va for my Local Six Forty Seven photo story (coming soon) I stopped by Barrel Oak Winery and got a tour and a chance to check out how they do things in this down-to-earth vineyard.
Check them out on the web here. If you are in the area I cannot recommend that you visit strongly enough.
Enjoy the following photos.
Sunday was grill day, after building my raised tomato beds I fired up the grill and made some baby ‘chokes and brilliant asparagus for photos and dinner.
These are the results:
Back to what I love. Food. Fresh as fresh can be.
Here are some photos of my visit to the Conshohocken Farmers Market .Located at the historic Washington Fire House. The market is small but had some very nice produce and lovely flowers. I also included some lit shots of the fantastic lettuce, rhubarb and cider I purchased there.
Many thanks to Carol A. Smith for the great chat and info about other markets coming up.
An unlikely combination I know but here are two photos that I think are great. Done with two lights on white seamless and a 60mm Macro.
Photographing Legum Bistro in Pittsburgh was a long time coming but it was so worth the wait. Legume is one of the coolest down – to – earth eateries I have been to lately. It came well recommended by friends and it certainly exceeded my expectations.
Owned by husband and wife team Trevitt and Sarah it runs like an ideal small family restaurant, efficient and friendly with a focus on superb and honest food. I could go on and on about how you should eat there. Suffice to say…You need to eat there. Check out www.legumebistro.com
I set up some lights to photograph some food in a “product shot” environment. Chocolate, champagne, garlic, broccoli and lettuce all represent here. Shot with 60mm 2.8 Nikkor with 2 lights on plexi and coloured glass.
