Yesterday I went to Maria’s Deli (map) to photograph some of their great sandwiches. It was nothing fancy and I was shooting the sandwiches as they were being made. Unfortunately we did not have the time nor the budget to make a model of each item, place it just so, adjust all the lighting and get the perfect image. This was a run and gun shoot if I have ever seen one. Maria was taking orders, Jason was making the food and I was trying to get some shots while staying out of the way as much as possible. While I think we got some good images that will be great to use on their soon to be released website, I have yet to process them all. However, I did experience their West Coast Reuben (spelling corrected) that was phenomenal! So I just have to share. It is pumpernickel rye, oven roasted turkey, smoked gouda, sweet & sour slaw and Jason’s killer mustard. Served hot and delicious. If you are ever near St. Charles rock Road and 170 between 11 & 2 Monday through Friday, stop in. The rubin is typically the Tuesday special, but follow @MariasDeli on Twitter for daily updates. Yesterday was National Milk Chocolate Day so in addition to having the rubin, cookies were two for one.
