Gin fizz pomegranate cocktail - mix of gin, lime and pomegranate juice, plus decoration with egg white foam which technically makes the cocktail "royal". And my personal touch - the steaming rosemary. It is really easy to prepare even at home, just be very careful with the freshness and the origin of the eggs.
Studio photography test shot the day before a full day food and beer photo shoot with chef and stylist. I wanted to get the colour of the beer right and happened to have a bottle of Great Northern, a local beer in the fridge. Then enhanced the golden beer tones with the orange backlight.
Edible Christmas gift idea. Your favorite chocolate cookies with home made caramel, chocolate ganache or your favorite grandma jam. Just add a little star, sugar dust (aka snow) and some decoration to the wrapping and you get a perfect homemade Christmas gift for your loved ones.
Homemade pizza with cashew cream, topped with red wine poached pears, vegan blue cheese, dried Mission figs, and caramelized onion. Topped with fresh basil from our garden. Quite possibly the best pizza I have ever made. Lighting: strip softbox at 11:00. Settings: Nikon D810, 50mm/1.8, ISO 100, 1/160 sec, f/6.3.
I bought this bottle for the shape and the color. I liked the large punt and how it looked through the thick glass, and the contrast of the golden whiskey, and white and blue label. I tried to complement the colors with a similar background: shining two gelled lights (orange and blue) through a textured piece of plastic. I'm happy with it, though next time I'll try adding some black card to give the glass some shape since it almost disappears into the background.
‘Memory Box’. A food memory that is special to you. That reminds you of a time and/or place that you look back on with great fondness.
For me, it was an afternoon in a pub on the Edinburgh high street, during my first trip over to Scotland. A cosy setting on a cold day in one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Planning our next stop and reminiscing about all we had done so far. This was also the first time that I had bona fide Scottish Haggis.
I chose to include some mementos in this image. A map of Glencoe, which is where we were heading next. A little tiny wooden Highland Coo (cow) that I picked up there. A coin from Edinburgh Castle. The closet thing I could find to a thistle here in Melbourne in the background.
This is a pictures made for #laschitadelloltrepopavese, an Italian group who love a typical food recipe of Oltrepó area : "la schita" is made only with flour, water and salt, cooked with a little bit of oil and served with gorgonzola cheese or typical "pancetta" (very thin slices of bacon). In Oltrepó area
every grandma swears to know the original recipe... But in any case every schita is tasty!
A shot of honey in the whiskey? Why not, simply put the blurring in the foreground of the image with the aperture open, with a little soft light from the left and right side. The contrast between the dark slate and the golden yellow shining whiskey makes this a wonderful eye-catcher. Are you thirsty?
This is a delicious Pandan Cake made in a Chiffon Tin with a simple drip glaze and pistachio topping. The use of negative space helps draw the viewer to the visual weight of the cake. The detail of the cake and the fabric base is highlighted by lovely soft natural side light.
