I’ve been struggling with light here lightly. I’ve been trying different methods and last night I think I finally found one. Earlier this summer I made a fake picnic table for a food prop background, which has still yet to be painted. Got some white cardboard at Wal-mart and used duck tape to put it together. The light bulbs are daylight savings light bulbs and I have found that shining them directly over the food makes a really harsh light in the photo. The light has to be set up so that it is reflecting off the white card board like it shows in my picture down below. I’ve got many food props like plates and napkins down stairs in my photo room. Hopefully this method works. I took this picture of pretzels last night in my new set up.
Sorry, this pic was taking with my Windows phone.
Looks like it was taken outside or by the window right?
Anyways, just wanted to show you’ll my method for taking my pictures. My camera is another story and I’ve been trying to figure that out too, just got a new one here this summer. Anyways, let’s talk about this shrimp bake now.
Cooking shrimp can be quite difficult sometimes. They don’t take long to cook on the stove top. Baking shrimp in the oven is a guaranteed full proof method of cooking shrimp. You don’t have to worry about flipping the shrimp and they only take 10 minutes to bake in the oven. I served the shrimp over some orzo pasta. It’s this pasta that looks like rice, we just call it rice in our house. Goes with everything. Use different seasoning packet to change this recipe up again. Only 4 simple ingredients, lemons, shrimp, butter, and a seasoning packet.
1½ lb shrimp that has been shelled and deveined
1 stick butter
1 lemon, sliced thin
1 pkg dry italian seasoning packet
1 Prehead oven to 350 degrees. Line cookie sheets with sides with foil. 2 Melt butter in oven on lined cookie sheet. Lay lemon slices on melted butter. Lay shrimp on top of butter and lemons. Sprinkle the dry Italian dressing mix on top of shrimp. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes, until light golden brown. 3 This is great alone or served on pasta or rice using melted butter/lemon juice drizzled on top. 4 It is hard for me to say how many shrimp to use since shrimp come in different weights and sizes. Just use your own judgment. I usually us a medium shrimp and I can lay around 36 on a cookie sheet.
