I woke up on Thanksgiving morning with a sense of calm and I was so excited to have a much needed day off from work. Then I remembered how much I love the process of preparing the Thanksgiving feast. I also remembered how much I used to enjoy photographing food. With a rented 100mm macro lens from a shoot earlier int he week I decided to pick apart the meal frame by frame. Here is a glimpse at the process of getting the meal on to the table.
Everything starts with a clean cutting board and a sharp knife.
