Sage and prosciutto corn cakes - DHSPC #4

[caption id="" align="alignleft" width="180" caption="Original Image - to be achieved"]Donna Hay Styling and photo Challenge #4 - Original[/caption]

In early December Simone challenged us again with a new Donna Hay Photography challenge.

This time it was a savory recipe and a quite different style of food photography... takenby Ben Dearley or William Meppem fromDonna Hay issue 48.

I've been sick again in December for the most part of the month and not cooking much or blogging or anything... so the challenge got put away "'till I'd be better".

Quicker than you can say 1-2-3 Christmas Holidays were here and again I had no time for cooking and shooting as I spent the days with my family.

When Simone announced on Twitter that she'd extended the deadline I thought this might be a chance to participate anyway. So here I am - late as always and not very happy with the results!

I had to do some tweaking with the props, the plate is not white and the wrong shape too and the wine glass is too tall compared to the original.

I like this version although the angle is not right and the colors are not good either. the lightning is too bright and the shadows are not deep enough. I also had a hard time to achieve the needed bokeh in the background.

In this one the angle is better and nearer to the original, lightning is still wrong and colors need to be improved as well. The placement of the glass got a little wrong too. But then again I think it is not too bad... others did a way better job tho!

Hop over to Simone's to see all the participants - you can find the recipe for this delicious corn cakes too, believe me they are worth a try!

This photography and styling event is the brainchild of Simone and hosted at her blog Junglefrog Cooking.

She writes about the challenge:

Above all this challenge is abouthaving funstyling and photographing a dish by taking Donna Hay as our great example. You can join all months or whenever you feel like joining in. Using an example of the great photographers that Donna works with, I always find that it is a good learning experience to see how did they light the scene, where does the light come from and how did they manage to make it look so beautiful. Try and analyze all of that and then come up with your own version.

While taking food photos is all about finding your own style and certainlynot copyinganyone else, it does help toanalyzehow your hero's do their job. It's about learning to light and style a scene properly. In no way am I trying to suggest you copy another person style. Find your own unique style! This challenge is just a tool to help you along the way..
