Campari soda, garnished with fresh rosemary.
I placed the main light behind the drink to bring out the intense red colour of the Campari and used a reflector pointing to the rosemary. The smoke in the back is real.

While I was preparing some spice mixes for a few Indian dishes that I wanted to make, I had the idea of taking a few close-ups of the spices to show their beauty. This picture is one of them, certainly from the looks, one of my favourite spices: star anise.96th Collection

In my house, we traditionally eat crayfish at the time of summer solstice. I love the intense colour of the crayfish, together with the dill, which I wanted to bring out without overpowering the image with too much colour or other noise.
I used natural light for this image.

I made a few cocktails for world cocktail day, one of which is this classic Garibaldi cocktail, featuring the perfect blend of Campari and freshly squeezed orange juice.91st Collection
Gin and tonic, one of my favourite drinks, simply flavoured with a few juniper berries and fresh rosemary.91st Collection
Squid ink linguine with hot chilli pesto.
A black subject on a black background is always a bit tricky to capture, hence I used artificial light which gives better control. I also added a strong contrasting colour which not only works on the picture but also added a lot of flavour to the final dish.
Portrait of an organic broccoli. This one was so fresh and perfect that I had to take its picture using only one artificial light source.89th Collection
Escargot with herb butter, captured my way.89th Collection
Pomegranate and gin mocktail. I wanted to show that non-alcoholic drinks can look as cool as the ‘real’ ones; and you barely taste the difference.
This was also a little experiment with colour rules, monochromatic and complementary in one shot.
Macro image of a pomegranate. I've always had a similar image in my mind, but believe it or not until recently I didn't know
how to properly peel a pomegranate. The picture was taken with only one artificial light source to create this dark and mystical atmosphere.
Grünkohl, or kale, is a very popular German winter warmer dish. It's usually a very rustic dish and often captured as such, but I wanted to show it differently to bring out its beautiful side.87th Collection
Linzer cookies filled with a homemade apricot and vanilla jam. I like taking my food pictures my own way, without (m)any props. This applies to Christmas cookies as well. The black background brings out the bright orange of the jam and the icing sugar adds a bit wintery touch to it.86th Collection
50 shades of black. I love blackberries, not only are they very healthy but they are also very photogenic.
This picture was an experiment as it is all black. I found it very interesting to show how the different textures, which are all black, came out in the picture.
