Default Caviar!

Today I had a shoot (happens 2 to 4 times per year) for the Michelin starred chef Nicolas Magie.

There is no cheating, it's real food, no paint, varnish and the like as often.
So I can eat each plate when shot :) Today was 10 dishes + 3 desserts! I could not eat them all, but I can assure it was delicious…

A pentax 645 Z + 90 mm, 55 mm and 120 mm, two led panels and a flash light mounted on the camera and… day light was what I needed!





The set-up

Then when it was finished, with the Chef we "played" with a spoon of caviar…

Wonderful!

But the glass should have some bubbly in it, no? I shall wash down the caviar and oysters with coke!

Regards.

Ah! The glass had been filled with some good Saint-Emillion, then emptied ;)
The plate just beside is in fact my lunch served by the chef while I was shooting from early morning…

But please, my friend, no coke with caviar! Water! sparkling or plain : ) or even tea (no sugar), that might be a good choice…

I think the plain tea might go best as the caviar has a lot of salt.

But what about Saint-Emillion? How sugary can that be, or is it dry?

These insufferable ignorant Americans!!!

:)

The glass of wine was not for the caviar but for the dish that the Chef prepared for me to eat (was roasted veal)
Personally I would go for Vodka with caviar

To the "These insufferable ignorant Americans!!!": Saint-Emillion is ALWAYS "dry".

I suspected that! I couldn't imagine anything sweet with caviar. But it does show my lack of refined upbringing! Who would have believed, way back, when I grew up in London, that an Englishmen would look to France for taste and class!

Hi Antonio

For the pleasure (at least for mine!).
It's been quite a long time I shoot caviar in dishes, I wanted to go for a macro, just to see how these eggs are when viewed "bigger"…

The most delicious caviar picture ever! But is it upside down? Because my view cameras always show an upside down image on the ground glass I get habituated into flipping pictures in the mind's eye. Either way, still tasty.

Hi Maris,
Thanks!
The caviar was moulded in a spoon then delicately dropped on a plate, this is why you may think that it is upside down (due to the spoon shape).
What you see is upside up : )
