The first time I saw star anise was on a photo by Lou Manna (a beverage shot, I believe). Then, I used it in a photo for Astor Chocolate. What a great little spice…great texture, great color, great shape. So, when I passed a spice store on my way home from a wedding in Connecticut, I picked some up. A fun shot to do…and smells good too.
On a different note, the contest for Jersey Shore restaurants is still open but, moving slowly. Any restaurant in Monmouth, Ocean, Atlantic or Cape May county can register to win a free photo shoot. See the application for details (http://www.photography-by-jerry.com/contest). Even if you’re not interested, spread the word!
I was a science teacher for 31 years. During that time I photographed wedding and Bar Mitzvahs for about 15 years but that was in the days before digital. Being a teacher, I had my summers free so I assisted food and commercial still life photographers in NYC for 3 summers and fell in love with it. Having a wife and a mortgage, it was not practical to give up a job in teaching and go into photography so I put off my dream of becoming a food photographer until I retired from teaching. Now I am living my dream - I am a food and product photographer servicing New York City, Philadelphia and all of New Jersey.
