(4) Chocolate and Macadamia Nut Brownie with Whipped Cream
I got two items for Christmas that complemented each other perfectly - the Gu Chocolate Cookbook and Food Photography: From Snapshots to Great Shots.
Almost immediately, I ordered a set of reflectors off Amazon - something I've been meaning to do for a while.
A group of friends and I went out for my birthday, and I made these brownies for a snack - straight from the book. Really easy recipe to follow, and the brownies came out good at the first attempt - always a good sign! Took 15 minutes to set up this shot while they were cooking (including setting my boyfriend down to whip the cream!). All natural light from the window on the left , with a silver reflector on the right.
First proper attempt at food photography, so comments and critique very much appreciated.
