Shelly from Humble pie dropped off three pies for the photo shoot today. Opening the box was an emotional experience. These are the most beautiful pies I have ever seen in my life. It is a work of art. It almost made me cry. Paulius and I started working in angles and lights. It took about 40-50 shots before we finalized on the one we liked. We did the whole pies before cutting it. We added more props as we went. I learned a lot from Paulius today about angles, lighting, shadows and framing.
After taking photos of the whole pie, we decided to cut the Humble Fudge pie to take a picture of the inside. I was really nervous as the pie was so perfect. I finally decided where I am going to cut it. And made a cut. What happened next - words cannot describe. The chocolate inside starting flowing out, as if the pie was alive. I stood there not believeing my eyes. I have never seen such a thing. Paulius thought I got scared by the "mess". He said "Don't worry about the mess. Sometimes food is a living thing and this happens". Yes, it is a living thing if it can evoke as much emotions as it did. He took a blow torch to melt the chocolate more as it flowed down the cutting board. We played with different angles to show the fudge flowing out. I think we got it! But I dont know if a photo can ever do justice to a pie like that. And even if it does, it is only because of our awesome photograher who was super patient with me as he walked me through the science and art of photography.
Below is a photo from my cell-phone which does not at all do justice to the pie. Watch for our professional photos coming up on facebook tomorrow.
Madison Sourdough is signed up! We are looking forward to bringing their fresh baked sourdough bread to your door step. I also got a chance to talk to the team there - they are so awesome and helpful. And got a chance to see their stone mill. It looks like a work of art and engineering marvel combined in one and makes you think of their mouth watering bread.
Also met Yumbutter's Adrian Reif. Looking forward to how these are all going to look in our photoshoot
We are very excited to announce Jordandal farms will be participating on Square Harvest. It was a great learning experience for me to listen to them describe the various aspects of what it means for them to start participating in another way to distribute their meat. I saw the meat in their stall at the Farmer's market and it looks amazing. Very excited to offer it on Square Harvest.
Got our first set of food photographs from our photographer. They are looking awesome. Learning a lot about food photography in talking to our photographer.
