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.

  6. The idea of a travel water purifier probably never crosses a lot of people's minds. Most of us are simply concerned either with purifying what we drink at home, or we have switched to drinking bottled inside and outside of the house. The first thing I want to say is that if you don't currently have a purifier in your home you need to get one, and the other thing is stop drinking pre-packaged bottled H2O. 500ml custom bottle manufacturers
