Scone & Coffee – South Weber, UT – Fujifilm X100F

My wife, Amanda, likes to cook and bake. She’s pretty good at it. My kids and I are very fortunate, privileged really, to be able to taste her culinary creations on a regular basis. We are frequently treated to exceptionally tasty food. She’s routinely complimented by friends and family who have the opportunity to try something she’s made.

She hasn’t always been great in the kitchen. That’s not to say that she was bad, but simply that she’s made significant progress, striving for improvement, trying different ideas, and finding new techniques. She is constantly refining recipes. I guess the thing about Amanda is that she always gives 100% with whatever she does, so eventually, with practice, whatever it is will become great. Good isn’t good enough. It’s got to be great, and she will find a way to make it great.

I told her that she should publish a cookbook. She’s got a lot of simple yet great dishes and desserts that she makes that should be household staples across the country. I don’t know if that will ever happen, but it would be a great cookbook if she ever did write it.

I’m not one to snap pictures of whatever it is that I’m eating. But I have occasionally captured the food that my wife has cooked or is cooking. The Fujifilm X100F is an excellent tool for this job, always nearby ready to go and never in the way. I find that natural window light is best. As with any genre of photography, it comes down to light and storytelling. Tell an interesting story and do so in nice light and you’ll have a great picture.
