Photographing porridge is always a challenge, creating a warm feeling and keeping a lovely shine on the creamy oats by using a soft box to simulate early morning light and create soft shadows to add texture to the porridge. The shadows are kept soft by using a second soft box to soften the shadows and to add a glimmer of light to the lemon and banana.<br />

A glass of iced butterfly pea tea. The iced tea was to have some lemon slices added. Before adding the citrus, I dropped the slices to make a splash. One slice is off the glass, but it makes the picture looks nice.

This shot was an afterthought of a recipe development shoot for my local speciality mushroom grower.  The final shot was a flatly showcasing the product with the recipe for the mushroom cashew tart.<br />

The brief was they wanted rich colours without being dark as so many mushroom shots are.  The backdrop I custom made with rough sawn pine, layered first with a matte grey, then arctic white, finally with sage.  The whole surface was then scuffed with a wire brush to reveal the various layers.
