Yesterday my mom and I went to a Thai restaurant called The Magic Noodle Bowl. Knowing how nice they present thier food, I brought my camera with my new 50 mm, 1.8 lens. I used window lighting and available light. These are a few of the shots I got. We ordered steamed dumplings, pad thai, and lo mein with chicken. They also served soup.

Last class period, Professor Jerry Schmidt baked bread and brought food to make sandwiches and salads for an in-class food shoot. The plan was to shoot tethered to the computer and work as a team. So the class seperated into four groups and worked together to create a delicious-looking pictures of food. These are pictures that our group took, taking turns while the other members enjoyed fresh bread dipped in olive oil. I’m not sure which ones I took and which ones the other members of my group took, but I thought I’d post several in case someone wasn’t able to get access to the photos. I did some post-processing to the photos in Adobe Lightroom 2.0.
This was a set I originally shot for Editorial class, but didn’t quite fit the assignment. It was spawned by the quote that surrealism is “a soda can and an umbrella on a disection table” (unfortuanetly I don’t remember who said it). Regardless, I had fun with this one. Shot with two profoto lights. Some of the shots were shot with a lensbaby lens.

In editorial class we needed to look up photographers we liked. Using http://www.editorialphoto.com/ I found these particular photographers to have stunning pictures:
