Food Photo Competition 2014 No 5 : Entry Number 59

Judges Comment

Simple is often best and what’s simpler than bread and butter? You have given everything plenty room and your play with parallel lines is nice, the black background helping with that. Good crisp shot, well done.

Photographers Comment

Thank you for the mark of excellence award. My name is James Markus and my wife Barbara makes these culinary treasures. This loaf lasted a short while before it became only a memory and this photo. Thanks hon! I shot this in my West Michigan kitchen with a D800 and a 35mm f1.4 lens. Lighting was a strobe with a gridded strip softbox and a reflector. Congratulations to all the finalist and the winner.
