Are you all as excited for the upcoming Easter as I am? While winter doesn’t seem to finally go away, the clock is still ticking, and it’s high time to get it on with some spring-time yummy things. As always, I am happy to share with you guys what I’ve been up to lately.
Hi from the busy food photography department that is my studio! Are you folks as excited as I am about this winter getting close to its end already? That’s right, pretty soon the snow (we do have some lying around here in Germany right now) will finally melt, making way for the spring season of 2013.
Can’t wait to shoot summer images, but still this winter has brought some exciting opportunities, cooperations, photoshoots, and cooking challenges as well. As always, I do appreciate you reading and following this blog, and would love to share some of the recent images with you guys!
How is this summer treating you so far, dear readers and followers? Particularly in Europe, it hasn’t been the sunniest so far, but they keep promising that the ‘real summer’ still might be just around the corner!
I have been incredibly busy over the last weeks, creating recipes and styling/shooting tons of images for the magazines I work with. SO here is my update for the food photography summer so far, packed in selected images – hope you’ll enjoy it! As always, be sure to check out the original recipes in the ‘So isst Italien’ and ‘Landgenuss’ magazines, and let me know how you liked those!
Happy spring time everybody!
While it did take us a good chunk of time to come out with this post, rest assures we did not put this blog to rest. We’ve been busy in our respective lines of work – Ira was cooking, styling and shooting food for various magazines, and Jive at one point saw himself facing more work than he deemed manageable, so it resulted in a silent period for FoodThruALens.
Are you an active online netizen, using the best and boldest today’s onliniverse has to offer? If so, you may already have come across Pinterest.com – the incredibly inspiring online community where people can “pin” pictures that they liked anywhere on the net. We’ve joined Pinterest.com just recently, and we were fairly pleased to see that many people have already pinned Ira’s images here and there, including some taken from this very blog. Which does deliver additional justification to what we do here.
Oh dear, how time flies: it really does feel like the summer was over just yesterday, and now look at the calendar – it’s almost December. Not that we had too much to complain about this fall’s weather (it really was smooth and cosy for the most part so far). And there is no frost or snow whatsoever (which suits Ira just fine and doesn’t suit Jive at all). But in order to come up with some winter-themed food images, one does need inspiration, which, well, is best delivered by snow and frost in this particular case.
I’ve came across this recipe by Donna Hay and though I’d add this type of chicken course to my collection. The recipe by Donna Hay goes like this:
8 chicken thigh fillets, skin on and bone in
2 brown onions, quartered
1 lemon, sliced
6 cloves garlic, unpeeled
10 sprigs thyme
1/4 cup (60ml) olive oil
1/2 cup (125ml) dry white wine
1 1/2 cup (375ml) chicken stock
