January 14th - Cuisine de Carton
I went out to the bank, the store, etc., this afternoon and thought I might get a photo, but it was pretty overcast and getting dark, so I bagged that idea. I had been down the "Prepared Foods" aisle and over to the frozen section and was looking forward to finishing dinner so I could come up with something to shoot when I thought of the photo on the box of potatoes. I decided I'd try to make our dinner look more uptown than it really was. While the food was in the oven, I set up the shot: CFL Softbox about 18" over the table pointing straight down on the plate, strobe pointing at the wall behind (to give a better highlight on the silverware) on 1/32 power. When the timer went off, I served it up and shot about 8 variations. You're looking at the winner - 1/40 sec. f/4.5 iso 200.
