Hana Dethlefsen’s Japanese Home Cooking (24 Images)
Late last year I was asked to contribute to a project that proved to be deliciously interesting. My friend Hana, whose project is documented here: participatorycookbook.wordpress.com came to me with a request for photos for a project that would become part of her Masters Degree. Over a half dozen shoots, some very styled and others more spontaneous, we shot more than 2000 images, which were edited down to about 300 options. These numbers may sound insane, but this is the luxury that shooting with digital equipment provides. We were able to shoot lots of different combinations, backgrounds and compositions to meet both Hana’s needs and mine as a photographer. Thanks to Hana for inviting me along and to her book designer Chris for his styling contributions. Hana is looking currently considering publishers for her finished project.
