A personal website by Khürt Williams, with imagery, and inchoate ramblings on coffee, beer, and geekery.
Bhavna saw the Orange Habañero Marmalade on the shelf and pointed it out to me. We have fallen in love with a Jalapeño jelly we had while on vacation in Virginia Beach last year. I bought a bottle of Big Bad Dad’s hoping it would be as good as the one we had in Virginia. It was much better.
I woke up early as usual and while performing my morning coffee ritual I saw the bottle sitting on the kitchen table with the morning sun reflecting off the jar. I immediately knew what I wanted for breakfast. Marmalade and toast. And I knew I had a photo opportunity.
I grabbed my camera and tripod and a white kitchen towel and prepared the staging area while I toasted my bread and heated water for the French Press. I’ve read a lot of article on food photography. I’m learning how to light food but more importantly how to stage the food. There is a lot to learn but I know I can get better with practice. My light source was the sun coming through the kitchen window and I used my Nikkor 35mm f/1.8 and Nikon D5100 on the Manfrotto tripod. I shot at f/4.5. You can see the equipment setup on Flickr.
