Last year for father's day I decided to scan some of my grandma's most popular dessert recipes cards and make cookbook for my dad. This year I chose to bake one of my dad's favorite treats, Oatmeal Raisin Cookies. After I got done baking them, they were so delicious looking I couldn't resist shooting them! So here they are, unfortunately the cookies won't be arriving in LA in time for Father's day, but until then my dad can do a little drooling over what will be arriving on his doorstep this week. (UPS said they should be there on Wednesday dad. )
As for my shooting notes, I shot these at 11:30pm in my tiny little kitchen with only my on-camera flash and some wall bounce. I am super pleased with the outcome! I never shoot food this way, usually I use a back key and frontal fill, or a window with a fill card. But in a pinch, I think this is a great technique.
Happy Father's Day!!
