A Sweet Weekend on Set with Sweet Paul

Ever read a Real Simple, Martha Stewart, or Bon Appetit and find yourself drooling over the photos of the food?  Though I hope my photography is getting better since the inception of this blog, it’s still eons away from these divine magazines. This weekend I had the absolute pleasure of learning from the creator of my favorite blog and digital magazine: Sweet Paul. Paul Lowe gave tips on food styling including plating and props. I learned the importance of texture, both on the plate and surrounding it.  Colin Cooke then showed us how to photograph the creations using natural light.

I am so inspired and can’t wait to test out all that I learned. Please be patient as I practice and learn. Here are some photos I took behind the scenes of the shoot:

 

 

Here are the photos I took of the finished products. Look out for Sweet Paul’s summer issue for the recipes and Colin Cooke’s sure-to-be-stunning photographs:

Chicken, coconut and lime salad

  1. Your foodporn can be improved upon…. who eats veggies with a knife? or leave pieces of bread scattered around their plate?

      Thanks for the tips. I am certainly still learning. There are some big items in the veggie plate, so I would personally use a knife. The bread… you have a point! (Though at the end of any meal in my house we seem to have food everywhere!) Thanks for reading.

  2. Oh Kim, your pictures turned out amazing! I really enjoyed meeting you and love your beautiful blog! So fun!
    Cheers!
