The day I started to take food-photography more seriously was the day I dreamt of shooting a cookbook. That was three years ago. Well, it took my some time but it went way faster then expected: my dream was becoming reality in the last half year and now its out and available: the first cookbook with pictures I shot! Read further for more about it.
Well, the title may be misleading, the recipes in the book are not mine. Thats eventually another step, further down the road. But every photograph in the book was done by me and also the food-styling.
In this cookbook it's all about turmeric (or curcuma). As turmeric is very healthy and has a distinctive taste it contains some very tasteful and interesting - alongside with healthy - recipes, 35 of them to be exact. Styling and shooting 35 recipes take so time as I discovered. And I discovered turmeric is hard to wash out of everything ;)
It also contains some nice images as background for the more informativ sited inside the book. And of course the cover.
Personally I think it came out great, I was able to take some really appealing images for the book and I'am really happy with the outcome of it all. I never thought it would be like it was, but it was a hole lot of fun doing it and I am looking forward to the next one! ;)
If your interested in buying the cookbook, it's actually only available here for 19,90 € (plus shipping).
Maybe you have seen my latest video "Behind the Scenes - Food-Photography" - if not see it here - where I actually photograph one of the dishes inside this cookbook. So, there's your chance to have a look for yourself to see how I worked on those images.
