New York Chessecake

New York Cheesecake

Whenever I have a lighting test, I like to shoot cakes, as it’s what I am good at. Any excuse to make cake right?

For this test, I need to test the colour and specular highlights on the raspberry coulis. Isn’t it just beautiful?

Once I was happy with the lighting, I added a few drips for the money shot. Drips always scream ‘eat me’ in food photography. It’s one of Instagram’s favourite shots.

Whiskey Sour

Whiskey Sour

The humble Whiskey Sour is currently my favourite drink. Simple to make, but refreshingly pleasing.

I tend to make it with whatever citrus is on hand at the time, and what I have been using for food styling. Clementines, Grapefruit, lemons and blood oranges.

Shot for personal projects with different moods and styling, it’s a fun subject to shoot.

My favourite is the shot with the dehydrated lemon. It adds just a touch of something beautiful. A great garnish for food photography.
