I have changed my mind. I want to be a food photographer. At least I do for now after making these little fellows...

I got the recipe for these from the Hummingbird Bakery book. They were the spiciest gingerbread men I had ever made, but their dark colour made for a brilliant contrast with the bright white icing (which was very hard to pipe, hence their slightly manic expressions). They were a lot of fun to make but even more fun to photograph, so here's a selection of images from the process -

Lots of flour everywhere


I think this poor fellow's expression speaks for itself. My icing is not great, I did hope for some celebrity gingerbread but this pretty much sums up how much harder icing with a piping bag is than it looks.

I need to do some work. Sigh.

Another example of some work I did for uni. These images are intended for two book covers for the plays Romeo and Juliet and A Midsummer Night's Dream by William Shakespeare. A different approach for me, I printed colours onto paper and cut them into these scenes. I then lit them and took photographs of them for the final product. I have barely picked up a pencil this summer and really need to get it into my head that I'm going into my final year of uni soon!
