Studio Session with Anneline.

Well wouldn't you know it, I can actually shoot something different to food and alcohol!
The studio session with Anneline was great fun, the results turned out great and hopefully I get to work with her again soon!
3 sneak peak shots from the session:

Good Food & Beverage Project 3 ~ Tomato Bredie

Finally I get to post another dish! Things just seem to never follow the schedule you set, but at least it's finally here!

The Tomato Bredie (also known as stew) was made from a recipe I found in a very old cookbook by Ina Paarman called 'Ina Paarman's All Colour Cookbook'  published in 1998, very easy, very healthy and tastes just as good!

The whole photo process was pretty simple & straight forward, the set up was done on the patio and one 580 EX II, triggered with Pocket Wizard Plus II's, were used to bounce some light of the ceiling and give the set up some nice even and 'diffused' light. I wanted the 'look' to be very rustic, therefore the use of the slatted wood table a log fire burning in the background and off course the good old bottle of chilled white wine. I found the flames of the log fire complimented the dish very nicely with similar hues of deep orange and red, all in all I'm very happy with the end result!

So for now the Good Food & Beverage Project will be put on Ice as I move on to the next project, The Retail Product Project.

So bookmark, follow on the blog and twitter, join the facebook fan page and check back, but don't miss it!
