January 1, 2012 - Home made bread from a recipe in the "Beard on Bread" cookbook. Didn't rise quite as much as I hoped, but turned out pretty well, none the less.
Photo was taken sitting on my stove - note the two parallel lines behind the bread. Photo was taken with a Canon 430EX speedlite mounted on the camera pointed to the right. I used the lid from the plastic bread box as a reflector, up and to the right. Flash was set to 1/16 power and gelled with 1/4 CTO. There is an under counter light just behind and to the left of the bread.
Couple things I'd adjust - first, the specular highlights off the stove in the background - either I need enough light to show what it is, or the reflections need to go. And, I'd adjust the DOF so that the whole face of the loaf was in focus.
