I’ve been potlucky this summer.  This is a new word of mine, it means you find yourselves at a lot of potlucks.  Mmmm….  All part of a cookbook project I’ve been involved in.  It has a cool angle to it, but it’s still a secret.  Consider this a teaser, an appetizer…

Food photography can be a lot of fun actually, but it’s work, there’s no doubt about it.  It’s a great way to practice unusual angles, narrow depth of field, and using compositional rules of thumb in an unconventional way.


While there is a lot of salmon in the above shots, I’m more of a halibut guy.  With the capers, yum… that was tasty.  But I’m also fond of images of the potluck itself… people milling around the kitchen, fingers stealing nibbles, the family dog roving about on crumb patrol underfoot…

Do you have a favourite food subject?
