Ginger ale with blackberry, thyme and mini rose. While going shopping, I found these beautiful mini rose and blackberry. Thinking that they would be pretty for a drink shot, so I bought them together with some thyme. I used ginger ale for its slight yellowish colour and clarity.
A true friend reaches for your hand...and puts a glass of gin it.

This is Chef Carlos Romero part of the new upcoming wave of promising chefs in the Dominican Republic. This image is featured in Santo Domingo Times Magazine as part of an article about the new generation of cuisine in the country and the faces behind it.
This photo was a personal project I was working on for a photography brief challenge a few months ago, as a member of Karl Taylor Education The goal was to replicate Karl Taylor's image of a wine bottle, down to the background's hue, the reflections on the bottle, and the bottle's positioning as the hero. It was challenging, to say the least; I didn't quite replicate the shot. However, I am glad I attempted it and I learned so much during the process.

While I was taking some olives out of a jar meant for a drinks shot, I had the idea for this setup. It is a little bit different than my usual, simplicity-focused style but I truly enjoyed shooting it as it was totally improvised. The rocks came from a flower deco, the twigs from a mini olive tree in my garden and the olives ended up as a snack.
I was apprehensive about this shot but I guess I shouldn't have been worried; at the end of the day, I always knew it Woodwork. Anyway, the great part about shooting drinks is that if it turns out, you drink to celebrate; and if it doesn't, you drink to forget.
