Due to our lack of a prop stylist this week, Lauren and I decided to try shooting something simple enough that it wouldn't require much propping.  Coming up with an idea was a little tricky, but eventually we settled on shooting portions of food on the appropriate flatware.  That way we could keep the shots tight and focus on one bit of food at a time.  We shot appetizers with the knife, the entree with the fork and dessert with the spoon. 



Lauren and I attended a sausage making class a couple of weeks ago at the Brooklyn Kitchen. It was a lot of fun, and if it weren't for my lack of a sausage stuffer, I would be making sausage all the time! 
Here are some fun photos from the class. Watch for some of these photos to show up on The Meat Hooks blog sometime soon, also!
