Practicing a little low-key lighting on food photography this evening. My brother and sister-in-law graciously helped out by providing the most decadent hamburger, dubbed the BB burger. It’s named for some of its ingredients, which shall remain closely guarded secrets. But I will disclose this: bacon was involved. So ya’ know it’s got to be good. Rest assured, it was.
Now to the real question. Which crop do you prefer? The full-frame image? The chef liked this one.
Or the pano-style, a bit tighter? This one had several votes.
Or the Instagram closeup? The burger lovers seem to prefer getting as close to the oozing goodness as possible.
Either way, the memorable meal is now preserved.
Our weather has really taken the “spring showers” idea seriously. Too seriously. As we wait patiently for the sun to shine so we may ride bikes, roam and explore, I snuck a quick picture of the boy with his dog.
The past few weeks have been a blur of Scouting and school, work and play. I was privileged to shoot some great editorial and commercial assignments. Maybe I’ll get to share them in the future. But for now, I’ll share what is captured between the storms. Stay dry!
Part of spring break was spent hiking in the state parks of Arkansas. Very impressed with the care put into their park system. Gotta go back for the fall color.
We all enjoyed our third snow day off of school today. But this one was the best because we had more than 3 inches of real snow to play in! That’s pretty rare around here. Most of it was already gone by the afternoon. Now we are waiting for the 70’s next week.
We’ve be enjoying (or semi-enjoying) some winter weather lately. Snow doesn’t happen often here in our neck of the woods, so it’s best to take advantage of the wintery mix while it lasts. Personally, I like that winter visits our area once a year, especially because it doesn’t visit for too long.
Since the snow started falling after all the kids were in school, the dog became my default subject. Like many retrievers, he loves the snow. He even decided to take the opportunity to go for an unexpected swim during our snowy walkabout. He didn’t appreciate the bath that followed.
Inspried by the gorgeous imagery at The Monochromatic Lens, I decided to play monochrome with the sprinkler images I made this summer. I love the way the water sparkles in the sunlight, in color or in black and white. High contrast and a little moody. I cannot decided which one I like best. Good problem, I guess!
I cannot think of a better way to beat 100 degree heat than a cool backyard sprinkler.
