Yes, these are photographed jars of fat, but not just any jars of fat. Duck Fat and Pure Tallow from the folks at specialty oil makers at Fatworks. So despite the very strange late June rainstorm, I ended up shooting jars of cooking oil.

The jars have been sitting on the dining room table for at least 2 weeks now. Why? I wanted to photograph them as still life. But not just still life, artificially sidelit still life.
