Brief notes & thoughts about matters artistical, gastronomical, philosophical, photographical, poetical, political, vaguely controversial and other stuff … just as life throws us the ball …
When we cook, we often photograph the result, while it is on or brought to the table. The eye so very often is overwhelmed by the beauty of a successful culinary creation and the photographer wants to capture the moment.
Not shooting for a food publication project, you want to hold the beauty of an arrangement, the colour, the texture, the composition and in all of that its aliveness and the pleasure it conveys to the senses.
Thekla recently pointed us to a few food blog sites with amazing culinary photography: Cannelle et Vanille and Roost – in both cases true artists are at work. Fascinating stuff.
