A Fresh Loaf {19/365}

“If thou tastest a crust of bread, thou tastest all the stars and all the heavens.”

--Robert Browning

Baked a fresh boule today!  Nothing like the smell, taste and especially the texture of bread.

I shot this one with a large 60" "Brella" (an umbrella with diffusion material) fixed with a bit of CTO to give the image a soft warm light.  Fitting for bread, no? Normally, large diffused light isn't the best to bring out textures, but leaving out a fill light or bounce will enhance the shadow areas and bring out the crumb.

Used my Canon 24-70 2.8L - set at f4, for a nice shallow field of focus with good bokeh, @ 160th at 100iso.

P.S. I shot a whole 4 gig card for this entry.  Shall I tease you with more?  Is your mouth watering? hmmm?
