Sweet Potato Casserole and B&W Wednesday

Sweet Potato Casserole and B&W Wednesday

For this week’s Black and White Wednesday I am featuring Sweet Potato Casserole.  BWW is a weekly culinary event hosted by Susan from The Well Seasoned Cook.  Although many people don’t believe B&W photography has a place in the food world, Susan is busily proving them wrong.

B&W food photos can set a mood or make food look more dramatic.  As an example,  I think the steam in the photo above is more pronounced in the B&W version compared to the colored version (photo further down in post), what do you think?  Um, I also noticed that the reflection of my striped shirt is more pronounced…hehe, oops.  Thanks Susan for encouraging me to explore the world of B&W and drawing my attention to things that may have gone unnoticed.
