For the next few days, we will feature a mini-series of posts on alternative processes in photography. Today, Jerry Spagnoli, who works with the Daguerreotype process, is being featured. If this interests you and you'd like to expand your creative palette, the F295 Annual Symposium might be the spot for you to do so.
I'd been saving for months and months, which seemed like a lifetime, and I didn’t even have a driver’s license yet. I’d given my savings to my dad to pick it up early that day. I sat in class, and the clock seemed to be going in reverse. I had a volleyball tournament after school, but I hoped my dad would show up before the whistle. The match started, then the second game, and then the third, yet I didn’t see him. Then, in the fourth game I saw him come in with a brown paper bag, and take a seat next to Sharon. That just killed me—not sitting next to Sharon—but knowing that in that bag was basically my life's savings. Wouldn’t you know it? We tied up the match and went into overtime. That I was spiking with all my might goes without saying. Finally, with the last serve, an ace, the match was over, and before anything else, I ran over to the bleachers. He handed me the paper bag with a big smile. I opened it, and inside I saw that brand new Minolta 200 f4 lens I’d been saving so long for. I was in love!

With Memorial Day coming up soon, some of the big things that we all think about are barbecues and other fun food made to celebrate. Since this is a time for rest and relaxation, it also means that it is a time to keep things simpler. Something that you will also want to probably do is take pictures of the delectable bites. We know we all love to do that! But if you want your food photos to stand out from the rest while making the workflow more simple, keep these tips in mind.

Take a moment and think: How do you think the above photo was shot? Can you figure it out? Was it all natural light? Was it cropped in post-production?
This jaw-dropping photo of a glass frog was shot by Greg Basco, who runs Deep Green Photography. We asked him how he shot the photo above, and here's his response, with a breakdown including a lighting diagram, and also the gear he used.
