The whole experience with Matthew Mead and his wife Jenny was incredible! I am not sure there could be two sweeter people in the magazine business!I could not believe how professional AND fun they were! Since this is the first time I had even done a shoot of this caliber, I wasn’t sure what to expect and I admitted to Matthew that I was a bit nervous! But Matthew reassured me that it would be casual and low-stress and it was! they went right to work asking me to completely turn off all of the lights in the kitchen which intrigued me. I have always turned every light ON FULL BLAST!- no wonder my pictures never came out! I took a few tips from Jenny and Matthew and I was able to pull off these on the blog! It’s been fun learning my ISO settings! My kitchen seems to prefer between 1/25 and 1/80!
In the afternoon we took a break to have some lunch in our home. I made an Italian panini-style sandwich (see below) which they seemed to enjoy, so I thought I would share the recipe with you today! These day’s there is no better sandwich to me than a panini, and although I don’t have a panini press, I find that continually smashing the heck out of the sandwich while on the griddle suits me just fine!
Later we went to dinner at my friend’s restaurant here in Ithaca called ” The Heights Cafe”. I called James Larounis, the Chef and let him know we were coming. He made our meals perfect as he always does, and I thank him as well! here is a photograph of Matthew and I at the restaurant. I had one with Jenny and Matthew and I but it was hopelessly dark to the point I couldn’t see Jenny’s face at all! Maybe I can photo shop it!
Thank you Matthew and Jenny and staff for making my first magazine photo shoot so amazing!
Lotsa love is being sent your way! ♥♥
