Birthday Steaks on the Griddle

My birthday steaks! x 12 cooked on the griddle on the Rayburn. Happy Birthday to me... (I didn't eat them all but I could have). Not over-cooked, still a little pink inside, those steaks served with my own pepper sauce, pepper, cream and rum mixed with the juices from the meat. Fried button mushrooms in butter and garlic, asparagus and roast new potatoes. Rhubard crumble for afters...

It is hard to photograph food successfully, especially when it is being cooked in front of you. The chef does not want you there and even if your photo is a good one, it may muck up his cooking, an expensive shot! In this case though I was both cook and photographer.

A lot of food photography is staged using non-edible ingredients that are stable under hot lights. This was real food, nothing staged.

This shot was taken with a Nikon D3100 with autofocus enabled and using the built-in flash. No photoshopping required. Could be useful on a foodie website or magazine.

My list of presents was unexpectedly large and amazing, starting with a set of Britool spanners from the 1950s to another whole electric bike... I have two now so when you choose to come over we can cycle to the coast/pub/chip shop/local abandoned USAF airfield (delete where applicable). In addition, some Tamnavulin whisky, a bottle of LBV port, licquorice, sherbert lemons, a crash helmet, two shirts, a whisky flask from the 30s and porky scratchings.
