Fun foto contest

Yesterday I ran a fun foto contest. Here’s how.

I uploaded a photo to Facebook and then asked people to guess how I took the photo. The winner got a full-size copy of the image plus, in this case, the recipe to the food that I photographed.

Look at the picture and see if you can guess how I took the photo, where, when, what light sources and camera settings were used.

Good luck!

Here are the Facebook comments and the answer:

  • Rob Darby I’ll also give the recipe to the winner!

  • Kris Jack there is a stronger light source behind and slightly to the right, i would guess to be a window and morning sunlight, possibly an overcast day… for fill light a diffused on camera flash possibly a ceiling bounce??. Aperture 2.0-3.0 on a 30mm lens.

  • Rob Darby And, since this is the first contest, I’m giving away my delicious grilled salmon recipe for free! Grilled Salmon with potato salad recipe

    Salmon: Grill four salted salmon steaks over hot charcoal for 10-12 minutes, turning once. I added some large oak chips to the colas to add a smokey flavor. I also closed the lid for extra smoke flavor.

    Potato salad: I bought some ready-made potato salad from the grocery store and added my own boiled potatoes, fresh dill and a bit of apple cider vinegar to add bulk and save some money.

    Garnish: lemon and tomato wedges.

    Drunk: Goes great with black current leaf saft.
