Goals are important to have so I have challenged myself with a doozy. The self assigned goal is seek out and create the perfect grilled cheese sandwich using only bread, butter and cheese.
What does this have to do with a photographers blog? Nothing really. But if you want to challenge yourself just go to the store and pick up the 3 ingredients, head back home, set up a couple lights with bounce and some diffusion, tripod, camera, dial in settings, make sandwich, cook said sandwich, pick out appropriate plate, plate sandwich, photograph sandwich, style sandwich again, photograph it again, repeat. Once done, shove into yer face.
It’s a fun process.
Here is an attempt I made in my kitchen. Still tweaking things a bit working with ratios and cooking times but soon the world will know my super secrets. I should start using descriptive words like World’s Best Grilled Cheese Photographer for SEO purposes. I Googled it, there is no photographer at the top spot which means this a huge open market for this sort of grilled cheese sandwich photography.
All joking aside, does this look good enough to eat or should I immediately stop shooting food? Would you eat this?
