Inspiration: Food Photography

Last Monday I spoke about looking for inspiration in different places.  And one area that has been a serious source for me is food- and no I am not just talking about all the food I’ve been eating!  Since arriving to Singapore I have had the opportunity to take lots of food photography.  I really enjoy the challenge of trying to capture the vibrant colors and varied textures of the different dishes and ultimately translating those images into ones that leave your taste buds calling out.  Or at least that is the goal!

Here are some of my favorite images from this past weekend:

I took these photographs at brunch this past Sunday and was just wildly impressed by all of the displays.  I love the greens and different shades of oranges and reds and pinks.  There also was some fantastic contrast in terms of texture that gave the dishes beautiful dimension.  Too me the dishes were almost too perfect to eat…. almost!


Tell me, do these photos leave you inspired?  Or more importantly, do they leave you hungry?  Where did you find inspiration over this past week?
