I’ve been working with the wonderful and talented Selina Maitreya to complete my portfolio. After going through all of my current images, we decided that I needed at least 15 more. One missing category: soup.
After our last meeting, we decided that I needed two soups: one creamy and one chunky. Today was creamy soup day. I spent the afternoon peeling and roasting carrots and then pureeing and straining.
The end result was very delicious. Think I need to work on the styling a bit more though. My cream swirls need some practice
Food photography is much more than shooting beautiful food. So often we need to be the chef and stylist too. It’s fun to wear so many hats!
It’s storming out right now. Rain pelting the windows replete with thunder and lighting – a real Florida thunderstorm. But earlier this morning it was just right. Just right for breakfast on the beach. A little overcast, some lovely sea breeze (ok, it was windy and I had to tape down the place mats :)). And the sun peeking through the clouds just enough…

Meatloaf, mashed potato, and tomato gravy sandwiches.
A couple of weeks ago I spent a lovely Saturday afternoon at a food photography workshop in Ft. Lauderdale. The workshop was hosted by artist and photographer Jeremiah Jenner at his Galerie Jenner. Jeremiah invited Food Photographer and Stylist Kelly Sterling to prepare and style several dishes as well as coach us in some of the finer points of food photography. Kelly and her assistant, Camille West, cooked up some luscious dishes for us to photograph. It was a fun afternoon of wine drinking, socializing, shooting and eating.
- Citrus Salad – Pomegranate, Dragon Fruit, Prickly Pear.
- Asian Spiced Pork Crostini with Caramelized Orange Onions and Asiago.
- Black Mission Fig Crostini with Brie, Pistachios and Honey Balsamic Glaze.
- Fresh Berry Tart with Lemon Pastry Cream and Toasted Almond Shortbread.
- Boston Cream Cupcakes
Kelly’s blog has recipes for variations of two of the dishes she prepared. Her blog is also a wonderful place to visit for beautiful photography and delicious recipes.
