Are You Game For a Photo A Day Challenge?

[Editor's Note: Lists, prompts, suggestions - whatever you call them I love them. There seem to be so many floating around these days all you have to do is pick your poison.

The panelists of our Pro Food Photography on the Fly shared a few tips about keeping it easy (and real) when I asked them this question: Would you kindly share one of your "On the Fly" photos with us and share how you achieved that look?
