Free work. The aim was to present the pineapple as a "technical representation". The inner organic shows the freshness and texture of the fruit. I like minimalistic food photos that despite their "simplicity" invite you to look at the picture for more than 3 seconds.
This is my homemade Butterscotch Panna Cotta and Honeycomb. The round moulds of the Panna Cotta inspired me to create a composition of circles to draw the eye around the frame. I had edible flowers growing in the garden which provided a perfect Analogous colour combination for this image. Photographed in natural light and placed on my grey textured homemade backdrop, I think this really makes the subject stand out.
Glass of fresh cold currant cocktail on the table near the window, sunny backlight.
I take pictures of food and drinks that I make myself. I like to create a composition of light that conveys the mood and taste. It is very gratifying when even for lemonade it is successful.
The protagonist of each table - The Bread - held by the strong and loving hands of a woman. I used diffused natural light and moody, dark background with the idea to rapresent the sacrifices of the bakers, who begin their work in the dark to give us our daily bread.
This shot was from a client shoot. It was taken with a flash, to capture the crisp action, which was placed outside my window. The shadows were created from a box placed near the front, a piece of cardboard near the back, and the centre shadow was from the window frame.
I believe storytelling is truly important in food photography. When constructing this Pavlova tower, the detail of the meringues and berries were beautiful as they were so when I built the background layers I wanted to ensure the colours and composition did not distract from the main subject, rather draw your eye to it.
