    Follow them right through the book. LF Jim Hemenway sent them to me. I still have stomach cramps from laughing....

    Delightful. That's why the food photographers are the highest paid!

    BTW - I have an old Goerz catalogue which uses some pictures just such as these to demonstrate the superior quality and colour rendition of Dagor and Artar lenses....

    When I got my Master Tech a few months back (which itself is only a few years old) it came with a manual that looks like it was printed in the 60s....and it's practically brand new!

    Hi Tim,





    I do a bit of food work for a client (www.meetinghouseinn.com). Everything I have done for them I ahve done on location. Generally I will do some dummy shots for focus and then we do the real thing as quickly as possible. I am doing most of this on a barter basis for lots of great meals!! Some food photographers go to incredible lengths ... plaster molds ofo the food hand painted .... full restaurant kitchens in their studio, thouseand of watts of light, etc. There is one book on the subject that is very interesting, "Food in Focus" by Charlotte Plimmer. Some 70+ photos with lots of technical detail. Fun reading. Send me an email if you want to borow it (use th eemail you have not the one posted here ... I'll read it a lot sooner).

    And out of focus, it's even more appealing.
