Braised some short ribs today.  I decided to go with a very tight composition to add a bit of mystery as to what else is on the table setting.  It's hard to make something as inherently fatty and messy as short ribs look appealing, so I paired them with ultra-clean potatoes to show a nice contrast.

Steamed Clams with melted garlic butter.  This is a five-minute recipe so I wanted to keep the feel of the shot ultra simple and a little rushed.  Like a quick lunch or pre-meal snack.  Natural lighting.  Canon 6D, 50mm f/1.4 lens, ISO400, f/9.0, 1/40.

Photo of pork stock that I made using our Christmas ham last week.  

Styling: I wanted to highlight the chaotic, all-inclusive art that is broth making, so I just threw it all in and arranged it a little before adding the black peppercorns.  I left a couple errors in the shot (onion skin near the center-right of the pot) to give it some authenticity.

I kept a simple white surface to represent the simplicity of the dish, and used shadows from late afternoon natural window light (no reflector).

Canon 6D, 50mm f/1.4 lens, ISO 640, f/3.2, 1/40.  Lightly retouched in LightRoom to accent the blacks and add a hair of color saturation.
