I think it was 2012 or 2013 that I really got hooked on cooking and food photography. This was the one of, if not THE first food pic I’d taken to date that felt like more than just a quick “snap”. 10 years later I re-imagined the sandwich and photo as you see it above, using the lessons I’ve learned along the way.



I took this pic 3 years ago, but finally got around to getting it up (heh). (pemeal) Bacon, Brie, Egg, Lettuce, Tomato The BBELT!
