Hf423: bringing the studio to you!

well i brought my setup into class today — felt kinda goofy porting a mini reflective umbrella on the outside of my backpack, but it was worth it.

I got some more good experience with the flash, and even tried some flash-HDR (which shouldn’t really be different, but is…)

Anyway, here are the results:

Learning Flash Photography, bear with me.

Shooting with a Sunpak 4000 AF (non TTL, basically guess work, and frustrating when it takes 20 seconds for the flash to recharge)

Hope you like em.

Easter In CT.  No room for a tripod, so I had to handhold the food shots.

French-style oysters from a w0nderful Russian fish-purchaser

So after grabbing pickup from Dok Bua (best Thai in boston, amazingly 100 yards from my apartment) Lara and I stopped into Wulf’s fish market looking to buy some oysters.

While there, we were lucky enough to converse with a wonderful Russian woman who was having a fish mongered for her.

She offered us a recommendation for our oysters that turned out to be one of the most wonderful flavor/texture/experience combinations I have ever enjoyed.  She made sure that we were 21 first (it was all sort of hush-hush, really), and told us about this:


Could this oyster be more perfect?

5 oz fresh (good quality) horseradish
2 oz heinz katchup
2 oz organic ketchup
1 oz rancho gordo hot sauce
1 oz worchestershire
salt and pepper to taste

1 freshly shucked oyster *minimal hand-stabbing*

topped with lemon juice and ice cold grey goose.


serve with a pacifico beer:
mixed with 1 oz rancho gordo hot sauce
                      1 oz worchestershire
                        2 oz lime juice
                          salted rim

have a wonderful day.


HF423 begins with a bang. (a porky bang)

Why does that sound so wrong?

Anyway, today was the first cooking session of HF 423 (Nutritional & American Regional).  We made some delicious (so what if ours was rare?  bring on the trichinosis) pork and red snapper.

It’s great to see lots of familiar faces, and even better to see such wonderful plating.  {Just kidding, I like you guys better than the food….}

But without further ado, the money shots from today, some of which were taken by Vince and Talia.
