DON'T MISS: Italian conceptual portrait photographer Sara Lando is coming to the US to teach in Atlanta (8/16) and Baltimore (8/23). Highly recommended.

Cooking Light: What's Cooking

Still a few days left before the deadline for the Cooking Light, the first full assignment from Lighting 102. But I thought I would share some of the stuff that has come in so far.

Some of you guys are clearly enjoying playing around in the kitchen. There is already a wide range of creative approaches to such a sparse assignment.

All of these photos were pulled from the discussion thread for the assignment. If you are not keeping up with the thread, you are missing out on a lot of good stuff.

There are far too many great shots to pick from already. But these are among the photos that I wish I had shot. Just for equal time's sake, I went with a knife, a fork and a spoon. As always, click on the pic for more info, or to leave a comment.

Remember to get your photos in by August 4th if you are participating realtime. We'll be talking about the assignment at length next Tuesday.

Several of Strobist's readers who are also bloggers are using the assignment as posts on their blogs. Way to go. It takes a gutsy confident photo blogger to to their homework on the air:

:: Meejahor ::
:: HCoyote ::
:: Ken's Photos ::
:: CDB Photo Archive ::
:: Jan Klier's Photo Journey ::

(Keep 'em coming!)

FWIW, I can't help but check out every reference to Strobist that appears on a blog. I find lots of interesting photo-related sites that way. You can easily find many of the sites by clicking here.

And if you are a Technorati-listed blogger and you link in to this site, your blog shows up in the "Explore the Blogs that Link to Us" link at the footer of every single post. That constant introduction of new sites to others is what makes the Blog World turn. Cool, huh?

And for those of you who have not yet turned in a photo: No worries. There is still pleeeeeeenty of time to procrastinate...

For some reason the first thing I did when I turned on the computer this morning was check my web site stats. Whoa! Got linked from Strobist, tidal wave ahoy! And I had about 1,000 extra people flooding in from SportsShooter.com yesterday so my server's getting a good stress test this week.

This assignment has been fun, and I still want to make at least one more image. The challenge now is trying to come up with something original.
