Making Your Mouth Water from Jerusalem 11


I don’t do much food photography. Photos of wonderful tasting dishes just don’t do much for me as a photographer. That isn’t to say there aren’t some amazing food photography out there for you to enjoy.

Two of my closest friends are some of the best food photographers I know, Ayngelina of Bacon is Magic (here is a link to one in her Food Fridays series) and Akila of The Road Forks (here is a link to one of her recent food posts).

That being said, I do love markets. Previously, I’ve done a post on the spices of the massive Damascus souk and also in Vietnam. So, in that vein, here are some shots I took in a Jerusalem food market a few months ago.

I am experimenting with some focus/depth of field methods with these lens and have also edited for different sizes and shapes in the final cuts. Am always open for your feedback on what works and what doesn’t.

A couple other quick reminders:

  • I am still looking for questions from readers for my newsletter that runs at the beginning of the month. Go to my Facebook Fan Page and post any questions you have for me there or email me.
  • And I am starting to get very active on Pinterest, like I mentioned here once before. If you are on Pinterest, here is the link to my profile, so you can follow me. If you aren’t on, but want the be, just drop me a note and I will get you an invitation.

Thanks for all the help and support recently. It has been appreciated as I deal with my first winter in years. I have come to think this weather has got me down a bit and as a result… no more winter for me.
