Flapjack food styling shoot

I've been wanting to try out some food photography for a now while and these chocolate chip and blueberry flapjacks I made for valentines day, were perfect for a mini food shoot!

I quickly realised that the glossy, delicious images that make you want to eat the page, are harder to create than I thought. My usual photography tricks don't work the same on food, so I was looking for new angles, filling the background differently and getting in really close. Determined to resemble something from a magazine, I tackled these flapjacks with a purpose and a mission - and loved the results!

I'll have to have to stock up my collection of pretty things though and start whipping up some beautiful looking food. Definitely a great creative challenge that I'll be doing again, it was so much fun!
