Let’s take a small break from the New Zealand trip, shall we? I felt like I had been holed up on the PC for days, sorting through photos and writing blogs posts, so I decided to go run a few errands, I picked myself up a yummy Raspberry Friand for my afternoon tea, and decided…

In the Studio – Star Anise

A few shots were taken in the studio on a stinking hot day, of some Star Anise, keeping it super simple, an old timber crate, some vintage brass scoops and my macro lens… Love the details, the heat of the day really brought the aroma out too… ~ Julz

Food Photography – Pulled Chicken Sliders

Back with another recipe with the help of my slow cooker, this time slow cooked pulled BBQ Chicken. The Pulled Chicken was actually cooked the night before and served with rice.
