Light and Dark Tartine Duo
Sunday 17 April 2016 — Category: Cooking & Food
The tartine (French) — a slice of untoasted bread with some sort of topping — is the staple of a European breakfast. This morning I had two — one with butter and spun honey, and the other with Nutella. Both were based on my wife’s freshly-baked homemade bread.
They were pleasing to the eye as well as to the tongue, so I took this picture. As usual, you can click on it to see a larger version.
At first I tried the shot hand-held, but my home office was so dimly lit that even at ISO 1,600 the image was a bit blurry. I realized that I was being hasty and lazy, so I took a minute to set up my tripod. If I’m going to bother taking a picture, I might as well do it right!
A full one-second shutter speed produced a well-exposed image which was in much better focus. After I had examined the photo closely in Lightroom, I was satisfied that I had gotten the picture I wanted. Then I was finally able to satisfy my hunger with two delicious tartines. C’est si bon!
