It's All Very Black And White Part 2

Posted by Nukaya , in Photography, Art Feb 21 2012 · 101 views

college oreo cookies
The other three images from the food project.

Deep-frying Oreos didn't go well, because they ended up looking like charcoal pieces and now the kitchen smells really bad. It did work for this though, since I needed to create a visually appealing but unappetizing image.

Part 1 is here.

The third shot just seems so perfect in a way I really can't put into words.

Loving the second and third shots. Is that shaving cream on the Oreos? It doesn't look quite like whipped cream to me, but maybe it's just melted a bit.

The third shot is very impressive! I imagine you had to time it just right before it started dripping off the sides. Nice.

Essentially since my mom went "let's hand the SLR camera to the three year old yes this will end very well". Proper studio work like this? Since January.

It's really cheap (and expired) whipped cream that was rapidly warming up because the fridge near the studio I thought would be working ended up being broken. In the sequence of photos I took of the ice cream, you can see everything rapidly melting in a really sad but slightly funny way.

It's funny that you thought the whipped cream was something else, because the milk in the other two images is actually white primer and water, since I didn't want to buy a gallon of milk to waste when I could just fake it and have it look like the exact same effect.

I guess. Most food photography, specifically in advertising and for product packaging gets way worse than this. Like, "milk" in most ads is really white liquid glue. I would have liked to use real milk, but yeah. I drink almond milk and it is off-colour, and I couldn't justify buying regular milk just to have to throw it away after.

Ah. I see. I remember my Graphics teacher explaing how some food companies use odd techniques to advertise. Like glossing burgers to make them shine or whatnot.
