We love our cheese. What you see in the photo above is a supply for about 2-3 days! Although we do not indulge in such treats often, but when the craving for nicely aged and full bodied cheese gets to us, I can't resist the huge variety offered at the cheese counter at our store.
Then it's fresh wholegrain bread from the market, still warm and filling the air with it's delicious aroma. At home that aroma is accompanied with the sharp, sweet, pungent or mellow aromas of the cheese. A happy dinner!
For February's Click the gorgeous two at Jugalbandi wanted a lot of cheese and they got plenty of cheese too. Being the judge this month I'm seeing several great shots so I just wanted to say - well done to you. Some of you have improved your photography immensely, which shows me how important such workshops are.
For my own shot I decided to keep the wrapped paper the cheese was packed in, just crumpling it more for more texture. I like the way the different levels bounces the light differently in the photograph. This, in my opinion gives the whole shot a great multi-dimensional feel.
Here are the technical details:
- Camera: Nikon D70s
- Lens: Nikkor 18-70mm
- Tripod: Bilora 1211
- Focal Length: 48 mm
- Exposure Time: 1/250s
- Aperture: f/8
- Lighting: Both Lowel Ego lights, using thin lightly gold colored sheer fabric draped over one for a slightly warmer light. A bounce was used directly in front to light up any dark patches.
I am taking a little break from my judging seat at Click. I need to pay attention to several other things right now. I should be back in that seat by October again so Bee, Jai hope you keep it nice and warm for me ;-)
