I take ok photos. I also use a pretty decent camera, which helps, so must of the shots that I post on the blog are pretty decent. None are great like those by Sophorn, Kip, Amanda, and others, but some are pretty good. It helps that my subject matter is normally something that is pleasing to most people, food, and I imagine that makes people like the photos even more. I’m no master or aperture, I’m not a maestro of ISO, and I’m certainly not the Top of the f-stops. But I will admit that I loved this photo as much as any that I have snapped…
The sandwich was better than the picture. Egg, bacon, sprouts, cucumbers, tomato, toast.
Here it is one more time.
Look Good, Shoot Good
Besides being one of my favorite restaurants in town, the Beauty Shop is also a photographers delight, as they have awesome light to shoot their food in. Combine that with nice white plates on slightly contrasty wooden tables, and you have a mix that allows an amateur like me to get a couple good shots in.
I also like the B. Shop, because I never go there alone. I’m always with a crew of people that I care about, and that makes a big difference. So whether it is the post-church brunch or the friend gathering or the co-worker lunch, I always enjoy it. Plus, they have the friendliest staff around. It has really been a pleasure to get to know the Clays, Tias, Joes, Karens, and all the other awesome folk over there.
Here are a couple of other shots from this trip:
Fish tacos. Awesome!
Fries. Plus sugar and cayenne. Spicy and sweet, an awesome treat.
Fruit. Not just melon any more.
Pancakes. Lemon and ricotta. Amazing.
