You all know I love photography right? I have been photographing everything from my toys as a kid, to models in cool destinations abroad, I do a bit of landscape photography within my work and now lately I have found a fascination for taking beautiful images of food and drinks.
It's not just a quick photo for an Instagram story, I really enjoy taking my time to set up the image. Finding the right light, the props and backdrop have to be perfect. I am trying to use everything I have learned through my years doing fashion photography to get the colors and composition right but to be honest I am just getting started with this type of photography. As always we try to shoot with both our phones and my camera, and I always like the images on the phone in the beginning, but as I start editing the photos from the camera - they always win. And I mean, the images from the phone is not bad, not at all, in fact, they are great. But there is no comparison to an image from an SLR camera.
How about you, what kind of equipment do you use?
I f you feel like recreating the cocktail, all you need is a pretty glass, some Rum, Pink grapefruit liqueur, a splash of Elderflower liqueur, a bucketload of ice if it a crazy hot summer day, sodawater and of course some flowers to use as garnish. It's good, I'll tell you that. A perfect mix och sweet and sourish. Enjoy!
