Building the meal

Yesterday's shot was cheese...today you get the...

The cheese became fondue and this was sliced up and used as a dunker, along with ham, broccoli, and pretzels. Yummy!

Shot this on the black counter top, no flash, with my 50mm lens. Note to self; when shooting in low light, black is not a good backdrop.

  2. It looks good to me too. I can picture dipping it into all kinds of good stuff. Then adding it to a big bowl of pasta!

    I saw something the other day it might have been on a blog or just somewhere like DPS. But it said to always have one of those foam core boards nearby to either reflect the light or just use behind something when shooting. I am gathering some of various sizes to use myself.

  3. Do we get the wine tomorrow, or will you make us whine? LOL! Good shot and I like the contrast of dark counter and white of the bread with the golden crust.

  6. Tough low light focus, nice job though and if you have some butter and sauce for that bread...I'm there!
