One on One Workshop with Chef Dennis Littley

Yesterday I finished the first day of a two day workshop with Dennis Littley, a professional chef who has a blog dedicated to cooking.  Dennis has a huge following, and is a talented chef and a skilled writer! His blog is packed with awesome recipes. Dennis took the workshop to gain a better understanding of lighting as it pertains to his own photography of food. As part of our first day of the workshop, I always do a demonstration of light painting, and today I created a composition of a beautiful mandarin orange and a pewter candlestick. Below is the result. Today we will do the post production of Dennis’ image, a lovely composition of tomatoes, garlic and a ceramic bottle. I’ll post the results of that image in the next few days.
