Dining out

I shoot some of our "Dining Out" restaurant profiles. Food can be easy to shoot... wide open with window light... but the challenge comes in capturing a restaurant's ambiance.

Our most recent profile was about country club dining, misconceptions of the experience and how it's changing. It's not often that you have such a nice view to work with. Whether or not this photo was successful, I'm not quite sure, yet. But it had a good deal of potential.

The dining area at Oneida Golf and Country Club in Oneida, Wis., offers an elevated view of the course, shown Monday, April 12, 2010. Prepared food, from left: filet mignon with fingerling potatoes, sautéed portobellos and spinach, and port wine demi-glace; grilled Chilean sea bass with orzo, feta salad and oregano vinaigrette; and an appetizer of cured salmon terrine, citrus arugula salad, tarragon oil, and black Tobiko caviar.
