Tuesdays.

IMG_9801-Edit

It turns out I have a buddy who minds the breakfast crowd at Garnett’s on Tuesdays. She and the owner told me I was welcome to come down one morning to play around. It was really quiet but the space is so amazingly photographic.

I got the staff (all 4 of them) to walk around. Well, all except one. The owner’s the one peeking over her newspaper there in the back.

A Nice Place to Eat.

I had lunch with a friend in a quaint little spot in the Fan yesterday. I desperately want to go back and shoot something else there. The space is beautiful. This little angle doesn’t do it justice.
And the food was amazing too. If you’re ever in Richmond, eat there.

Light Fare At Can-Can.

I carry a camera of one type or another with me all the time. Occasionally, it’s a film camera. There’s a romanticism to film that I like. Sometimes it’s a digital camera, a small point-and-shoot or a somewhat bulkier DSLR. I always have my phone with me, and you’ll have to remind me to show you some of the stuff I’ve seen with it sometime. Today, it was the DSLR.

I was meeting an old friend, the one who blogs. I’d cancelled on her earlier this week and, after giving me no end of e-shame (to include a blog post about standing her up, after which she went on a proper date, thankyouverymuch), we conspired to meet at what I’d almost blithely described as “the French place in Carytown,” Can-Can.

Though it’s been a bit drizzly here in Richmond lately, the light’s been beautiful. There’s so much to see, when you know what to look for. I figured that the light would be nice near the front of the restaurant to snap a few images for fun. In fact, every time I pass that place I marvel to myself how wonderful it would be to shoot a real portrait there, and then I never do. And I didn’t today.

What I did shoot however, were some images of the space, which always makes me wish my wife and I had more time to just lay about and spend money without a care in the world. Sadly, we have to work. But in addition to having beautiful light and being a fun place hang out and have a lazy Paulaner, Can-Can has great food.

We noshed and talked about old times and old acquaintances and did a fair amount of people watching, after which we parted ways. The general manager knows both of us from restaurant circles and bade us a nice evening as we left.

As I come to the end of this post, it occurs to me that there may even be a “she said” version of these events, and so there is. Check it out and have a good weekend.

More Grub.

I got down to the Six Burner Restaurant near the end of last week. After we shot together for their website, the head chef, Lee Gregory, and I conspired to have me come back from time to time to shoot stuff for their blog.

I enjoy the challenge of shooting food without natural light, so hanging out in their kitchen was a treat. Here are a couple of the dishes they served while I was there.

Fine Dining.

EDIT: Their site’s live here with the new images.

I recently finished post processing for the restaurant shoot I did last week. There’s nothing worse than shooting pictures of beautiful food when you’re hungry. Or thirsty, for that matter.

Good Eats.

I’m working with a local branding firm to redesign a website for a restaurant here in town. I went by to “sketch out” some ideas for the final product and actually walked away with a few things to play with.

Since I’m in the habit of using this space as my personal sounding board, I’ll throw a few up here to look at.
