Matcha Lotus, Black Sesame and Valrhona Chocolate Mooncake. A special mooncake for Mid-Autumn Festival celebration this year, created by Chef Hideki Maeda of Nobu Singapore at Four Seasons Hotel Singapore. As this particular delicacy is incorporating Japanese culture into a traditional Chinese, the props used are a reflection of both cultures. The golden color chosen for this scene was inspired by the luxurious lacquered gift box that came with the mooncakes.
When I picked the olives, my first thought was olive oil, how it would taste like when it’s freshly made. I was trying to visualise my thoughts in this picture, to show the context, but also to bring out the freshness and I wanted the viewer to taste the oil by just looking at the picture.
Cheat's almond croissants shot with direct light using a speedlight. They looked a little funky coming out of the oven, though delicious nonetheless, so I dressed them up a little for the photo with layers of icing sugar and more sliced almonds. Placed an empty glass jug in the top left for extra interest.
A dark and moody levitation image with predominance of red as the strongest colour. The perspective is from below to add a dramatic effect. The cut tomatoes are shot separately. The water droplets add freshness to the vegetables. A slight motion blur applied to the knife bringing in a sense of motion.
Pozole is probably the most traditional Mexican soup. It's served during celebrations and parties but it's also a big staple of everyday Mexican food. Primarily made with hominy, chicken or pork then topped with shredded lettuce, avocado, oregano, and radishes. This version was made with mushrooms, for VegNews magazine Christmas issue.
