Black Bass Dartmouth Mass
I like food photography assignments… although at times they can be nerve racking. Black Bass Dartmouth Mass was different, for the most part It all depends on the Chef and the staff as to how well organized they are. The trick is to shoot the food while its hot- to me it seems to bring out the color and of course the steam radiating from the food helps. You don’t always see it in the shot but overall I like to shoot right out of the kitchen.
I shoot food with all kinds of lighting systems, I have a portable Hensel lighting kit/strobes that are high output. And I also have a large kit by Arri, hot lights, and various florescent kits. If I’m shooting near windows I prefer to shoot with 5000K florescent lights. If I’m shooting inside of an elegant restaurant with candle light then I’m inclined to use 300 watt Arri tungsten at about 3K kelvin.
In all cases I use a tripod and camera remote with my Nikon D3’s. And while I do use toothpicks, hand-towels microwaved wet for steam ( at times ) I don’t get into the motor oil, glue, shoe polish and all that stuff. I try to keep things as natural as possible.
I photographed this session at the Black Bass Restaurant in Padanaram Village in South Dartmouth, MA. The staff was great- and so was the food, or so I hear. Actually it looked so good I went back on the weekend!

This whaleboat is not a replica it’s real. Late in her career she served as larboard boar on the schooner John R. Manta of New Bedford in 1025. Though this was the last American whaling voyage ever completed in sail, hand =-whaling methods and whaleboat usage had remained virtually unchanged for generations.
This whaleboat hands on the schooner’s larboard quarter. The gear aboard a whaleboat is made up of. Two “irons,” or harpoons, rest over the bow on the “clumsy cleat,” a think pine thwart that has a rounded notch cut on the after side, into which the boatsteere braces himself by one leg against the motions of the boat.
Five men row this boat. The whaleboat carries two tubs of line, oars, paddles, hatchet, shoulder gun, bomb-lances, spade, drug, water keg, and many other things, in all 48 articles and a least 82 pieces.
