Can we talk about Man Food for just a minute?
About a month ago, the super awesome people at Kayem Foods sent me a big ol’ Box o’ Meat. The box was filled with a variety of hot dogs, hamburgers, brats, & sausages for me to taste. As a single girl, I wasn’t sure what to do with all that meat, so I froze most of it & have been eating my way through it since.
Like I often do, the other day I stood in my front of my fridge wondering what to make for dinner. I saw the smoked kielbasa in my freezer & the craving for jambalaya hit me. So I turned to the Master himself, Emeril. I knew he wouldn’t let me down.
I can’t believe I’m already on my 6th week of this project. I already see a tremendous improvement in my photos & I’m only halfway through the program. I can only imagine the difference when I’m done!
This week’s lesson focused on using natural light sources while shooting indoors. This is something I already do on almost a daily basis. A vast majority of the photos on this blog are either shot on my bedroom floor or next to my kitchen sink. Both of those places have large windows providing a lot of indirect sunlight. The best thing about indirect light is it doesn’t have the strong shadows or contrast caused by direct light. I think direct light can make subjects look harsh & that’s the last thing I want for pretty cupcakes.
While I can’t even remember where I found this one, I’ve made this pulled pork recipe approximately 5 million times. Okay, maybe not that many, but it’s one of my go-to super easy dishes that I can eat for days on in. It’s also fantastic to feed several people fairly inexpensively due to its minimal ingredients & you can control how much you make by the size of your piece of meat. Did I mention it freezes well too?
