My friends Art and Alice called me last week to tell me that they were just in Hoboken and absolutely loved the restaurant I was going to be shooting in. It was beautiful and the food was outrageous. Boy were they right – at least about the beautiful part. I never tasted the food but I will take their word on it. The food looked delicious. This may be a great restaurant to eat in but, a tough place to work in – especially when I was scheduled for noon and a last minute birthday party was arriving at 12:15. As usual, I was there early to set up so I was able to get about a 1/2 hour of shooting in.
After a couple of shots, they told me that the party was arriving and I would have to move out of that area. I felt like I was dying. Did I get any good shots of this gorgeous place? The room was so nice that I wished that I had 2 hours to shoot it. As it turns out, I did get some really nice shots – sometimes I even surprise myself :)
Then I had to shoot the food. Unfortunately, I was set up in the same room as the party. I hope that my equipment, wires and constant flashes didn’t disturb them too much. There were lots of kids running around but, they didn’t really get in the way. We shot several dishes and one humongous steak – T-Bone I think. Then we shot it sliced…now I was starting to get hungry. After the steak was dessert. It was an absolutely beautiful tiramisu.
Completely covered with chocolate with a white cream, white chocolate and coffee ice cream-absolute torture (I’m diabetic.) Then another dessert came out – even more beautiful
than the previous one…It was just about then when I quoted Bugs – “Hoboken! Ooooh I’m dying again.”
