Those who know me know that I like to eat. Those living in Ottawa also know of the considerable restaurant openings in the last few years, delighting foodies across the city. While there are so many tremendous options, the one that stands out most for me is Town. Located at 296 Elgin St., Town has among the finest staff and cuisine this city has to offer. I had the pleasure of getting to know the owners, Lori and Marc, while on assignment for Ottawa in 2010, where we shared beers and laughs over the course of a few hours.
This past year, I've photographed their first-rate staff and some of their delectable food for their website. While I generally post photographs of people, I thought it would be interesting to share photos of food. I tend to bring the same process to photographing food, focusing on lighting, color and framing, as I would with environmental portraits, all the while trying not to sink my teeth in the mouthwatering dishes!
