If you've ever done a "pic-a-day" challenge you find yourself thinking about what to capture...what looks interesting, aesthetically pleasing, etc. Typically...I find the most photogenic aspect of my day tends to be food. So I tend to be the guy who whips out his camera at the dinner table to snap pics of the meals before I thoroughly demolish the delicious creation.
And hey...the plate makes for an excellent white-balance reference!
Here is a Vietnamese summer roll in the making...usually served with a sweet/savory peanut hoisin dipping sauce. The carrots and daikon are lightly pickled in a sweet vinegar sauce for a tangy zing. The mix of ingredients makes for really flavorful exploration of the fresh herbs....thai basil...cilantro...mint...a different taste with each bite. Lots of fun for the family, as everyone assembles their own works of art on their plate.
