Shoot To Cook

One of my motivations for getting into food photography was learning how to cook. As a way for me to learn how to be more competent in the kitchen and to hone my technique in food photography I started a food blog called Shoot To Cook: A Food and Photography Blog.

One of the things that I want to do is photograph bread. I have been wanting to do a bread related project for some time – though I was scooped on the idea by Thomas Broening who does amazing table top work including a series on bread recently.
