Coffee & cake part 4

All week I have been sharing my journey with coffee & cake. Four very different styles, different light and styling, I have used the same coffee cup in most. Today I am sharing some chocolate brownies (so full circle from day 1) and completely different styling. I wanted to capture height in my brownies, so I stacked them three high, with a cold glass of milk. This is exactly what I felt was missing from the first shoot I did.

I think I even put the raspberries in each and every scene too. I used natural light coming in through the studio door, this time (camera right), as well as a reflector on the right. A little sprinkle with icing sugar and it looks soooo good. It doesn’t have to be overly complicated…keep it simple!
