Week 4: Dinner

Week 4 of the Photography Challenge over at A Step In The Journey was to capture dinner.  While I really wanted to try to capture a fun restaurant or colorful cocktail, sadly this week was jam packed full and all I could capture was the new recipe we tried on Wednesday.  Actually, my sister Kacey made it first and told me we had to try it....

She was right - it was delicious!

I took this picture from on top of our kitchen counter looking down at everything bubbling away....Chicken Piccata on the bottom and red potatoes about to be mashed on top.

I chose to play with this photo in editing this week.  Like I've mentioned before, we don't get a lot of natural light in our house, so taking photos past early afternoon can be challenging.  I played with saturation, contrast, and shadows in editing in order to try to get the steam to really pop.

Chicken Piccata recipe can be found here.
