Photography is one of my life’s passions. I keep a lightweight tripod, light stand, tungsten bulb, and umbrella tucked away in the kitchen cabinet to capture the fleeting moments of beauty in food prep. With the right eye (and angle), you can transform the simple, humble ingredient like a key lime, rutabaga, or oyster mushroom into something majestic and stately.
This photo is straight out of camera with absolutely no post-processing. The metadata for this photo is also simple: a full-frame Canon 6D with the incredible 100mm f/2.8L Macro, ISO 100, f/8, and a tripod-mounted 1/13.
