Last week I was reading a blog post over at MCP Actions and saw that they were doing a photography project called Project MCP.
The purpose of this project is to help photographers develop their photography skills and I am all for developing my photography skills so I decided to take up the challenge for myself here on the blog and try their March week 1 and 2 challenge.
Week 1 challenge was to: Take a picture from a high vantage point, from above your subject.
While week 2 was to: Capture a photo using natural light.
Well, I decided to combine both weeks and work on some food photography which I so love doing. I enjoy discovering new recipes and trying them out while taking the opportunity to photography them. Below is a Fried Rice Recipe project I was working on that I found on Pinterest and tweaked slightly. I must say it was a hit the family loved it and I am definitely adding it to our recipe book.
I’ve included the recipe below just in case; you would like to try it.
3 cups cooked white rice it is important to use a day old or leftover rice that is the secret
3 tbs sesame oil
1 1/2 cup frozen peas, carrots and corn (thawed)
1 small onion, chopped
2 tsp minced garlic
2 eggs, slightly beaten
1/4-cup soy sauce
On medium high heat, heat the oil in a large skillet or wok.
Add the peas/carrots /corn mix, onion and garlic.
Stir-fry until tender.
Lower the heat to medium low and push the mixture off to one side, then pour your eggs on the other side of skillet and stir fry until scrambled.
Now add the rice and soy sauce and blend all together well.
Stir fry until thoroughly heated!
**You could really play around with this rice too! Try adding some diced ham, or green onion **
