Cheese. It’s one of our favorite subjects.

We’ve heard questions on whether B&W should be used for food. 

Well, No!  …and Yes!

Food, itself, we believe is too rich and expressive to use B&W. Food’s inherent beauty comes from the color, the hues, the tone that the earth has given it or from the colors that the process of cooking has imparted upon it. We find all of these too descriptive and emotive to omit from an image. On the other hand, food LIFESTYLE is a great place to use B&W. When the story is not the food, but the life, we like to use the absence of color to direct the viewer to the tonal and textural elements that lend cues to the story of the image.

We’re fortunate enough to live and work in Sonoma County, where the light and the soil provide us with some pretty great results. Just on the other side of the glass doors where we shoot is the studio garden. We were in the studio last weekend cleaning up from the previous week’s work and doing some reorganization of new props and I looked outside and saw that we had another batch of tomatoes, carrots and other things that were ready to be picked. The result is this. We love the character of the carrots and the richness of the tomatoes…. and we love sharing them with you.

Have a great tasting weekend!

It was a great harvest this year. Most folks are already completely done with their pressing and everything is in tanks and will soon be wine.

Here’s a tribute to harvest : a 200 year old bottle of port from the Alto Douro.  (for those who are more into the food and less into the wine, we’ll move back to food next #fpf)

Cheers!
