Rest Time

Being that Red Mangrove had a few really busy weeks (most of the editing still continues) we finally got some time without shooting this weekend so I decided to steal the good ol nikon from the studio. Just wanted to share some mess around photos, some food which I have started to grow a passion for. Enjoy, JP

P.S. I think Banana Cafe deserves a plug here, for those of you who know me you have already heard this. They have the best iced coffee on the planet. It is about 20 ounces of pure espresso which I put a tad of milk and a ton of simple syrup. Most people have a coffee in the morning to start their day. I have Banana's Iced coffee on Sunday for the entire week.

Ultra Wide Mechanics

For a recent job I had to rent the Canon 17mm ts-e which is the widest tilt/shift rectilinear lens available to the public. It is the perfect lens for shooting wide in the cramped spaces of our little island without buildings falling out of the screen and intersecting lines. I wish I could keep this lens forever but at $2500 i'm glad it was available for rent for this specific job. These photos are not tilted much but show the ultra wide angle of view. Enjoy, JP

Bagatelle Food

Jumped into some more food photography last week. Just happens the last two places I've shot are probably my favorite 2 restaurants. Once again I had great window lighting which gave me half the shot of which I just had to compensate for the other side. It was a great time and consequently I got to eat some fabulous food and have a Martini (or two). Bon appetit, Red Mangrove Inc.
