The 3 Cherry Tomato Pasta dish is below. I highlighted the cherry tomatoes because that is what makes the dish unique. The redness of the cherry tomatoes also become a very attractive color to the eye.
The Two Pasta Combo dish is below. I wanted to take a shot of the cute bell pepper around the cherry tomatoes again.
There are two ways to look at the end goal of food photography in my humble opinion. You need to ask yourself the question, “Do I want to eat this food afterwards or not?” Because if you really want to get that perfect photograph you will need to make your meal as unedible as possible: In this salad and pasta dish, the plates have been
poisoned wiped with glass cleaner and the fresh water sprays you see is glycerine. Also, there’s a huge mound of tissue underneath the lettuce and the pasta. And I tried to pin the olive onto the pasta using a safety pin. I would have used super glue but that would have permanently fastened the olive onto the pasta.
Here are some behind the scene shots.
PS: We won best photo for the Cherry Tomato Salad arrangement!!!
