This is the most interesting challenge! in many ways... Of course first in the list is, I can eat my subject!! Next is, there are many things I can choose to shoot, from the ingredients, methods, the presentation, the decorations, fruits, vegetables, cakes so on and so on......(I may need to extend the challenge until March :)
Last week, I have just grabbed my self a book from MPH on food photography, "Plate to Pixel" by Helene Dujardin, France born but moved to USA in late 90s. She uses natural light most of the times and has discussed in great details about natural lighting in her book.To start the challenge, i choose a few main ingredients usually used in Malay cooking.
