Deliciously, nutritiously photogenic foods. I went all out on food photography the other week in order to make a catalog for one of my final design projects. Needless to say I was excited about going back to photography. It’s been a while, and attempting to take on food photography wouldn’t be easy either.
So anyway, I’ll just rate my success on how hungry you feel after you see these photos. Enjoy!
When you’re feeling zapped of your originality: take photos of flowers.
When you’re can’t find flowers: take photos of food.
When the above two seem to fail you: take photos of sweets.
The latter will never fail you.
The muffin is sitting on top of a bottle of whipped cream, in case you're wondering. And I think you should know that spray whipped cream is the answer to all problems.
Again, more photos of food. I think food photography and highway photography (if that’s even a category) tend to be my most common subject…
Chinese stir fry, that's what.
You haven’t lived if you have never tasted Indian sweets. That’s right, those are sweets.
And those ‘apples’ on the side are actually colored burfi. I’m not too sure what the silver ones are called, but the one on the left is shape of a con-shell and the other is a diamond cut burfi. It takes a lot of self discipline to photograph these patiently without gorging on them first (well I did eat a couple while I was shooting..)
The silver icing definitely makes it look like a piece of jewelry. Hm, maybe it is. Indian sweets can be very deceptive.
