"Beets me" : During confinement at home, cravings for culinary creation, cravings for renewal... So I dreamed in my kitchen of a dish based on beets, lentils, carrots and nuts. The dream came true and it was delicious. I use the day light ingredients for this photography.
What I love about being a food photographer is the inspiration I receive from food artists. This shot was created at the Rock Salt Restaurant of Sheraton Resort and Spa in Maui. They were renovating the looks of the restaurant as well as the menu. The flavor of fruits gets enhanced by dehydration. They crafted this libation from dehydrated fruits and fine vodka. It was served in the giant wine glass. Fun to share. Cheers!
I have always loved the beauty of basil leaves. However, they are usually only seen as part of a food dish. I chose to showcase this leaf all by itself framed by an irregular round black plate on a blak placemat to isolate the leaf. Photographed with natural light, my favorite light source.
Today...from my "secret" pantry ... a delicacy of @casaflorio: - a sauce with spicy sausage -! Thanks to the variety of "Casa Florio" we treat ourselves to a first course typically Italian made only with simple ingredients and from the imagination of chef Claudio Florio directly from Molise. Thanks to a great manufacturer where tradition and innovation are the masters.
These strawberries looked so beautifully ripe and red in the shop, I just couldn't resist buying them! I knew I wanted to place just one on it's side with the rest stem down/bottoms to really emphasise the colour and texture of the fruit. I used one light, bare bulb diffused through a large scrim for a nice flat and natural looking light. I added a vignette in post with a little boost to saturation, curves and a bit of high pass.
This photo was so fun to create because it was completely different than my usual type of photo. Yet, it still fits into my style of photography. This definitely represented who I am as a person and photographer. Totally addicted to photography and caffeine!
A simple hero shot of a green smoothie mix that leaves plenty of negative space for the designer to work their magic.
As an ex-designer, I know how important it is to leave some breathing room in my shots for cropping options, as well as negative space to reverse text against, for instance.
As photographers, it's so important that we give consideration to not just our shot, but how that shot will be applied to the marketing collateral and how we can give our client/creative agency some latitude to work with our shots.
This photo was taken at the terrace of the hotel "Wilder Eder" in Austria. It was a wonderful sunny day with bright light. The interesting part was to play with this direct sunlight and the very sharp shadows. This is one photo out of a series for the Bookazin "Zu Gast"
Black pepper crab is one of the two most popular ways that crab is served in Singaporean cuisine. It is made with hard-shell crabs, and fried with black pepper. Unlike the other popular chilli crab dish, it is not cooked in a sauce and therefore has a dry consistency.
Decided to inspire people to eat healthily and cook at home... I prepared "Homemade crunchy Peanut Butter". It was the first time that I prepared this recipe at home for the family and I super satisfied with the resulting kid enjoy it and the beautiful photography that I have done.
