feast your eyes : food styling


according to wikipedia. "The role of the food stylist is to make the food look attractive in the finished photograph. The main difference between how a home cook or chef may present food and what a stylist does is the time and effort a stylist takes to carefully and artfully arrange the food. Also required is the visual know how, and ability to translate the perception of taste, aroma and appeal that one gets from an actual dish, to a two-dimensional photograph."

who even knew that food styling existed? it's funny because food stylists have such a similar job to fashion stylists... presenting food, instead of fashion, in a way that inspires fantasy and creation. which to me, is the essence of aesthetic expression... anyway. i also happen to love photography as much as i love food and fashion. it all just fits so perfectly.

no outfit post today because, simply put, i just threw on some random separates and had no time for photos. so that was my shot at food styling in the office. creme brulee from the garden of eden supermarket. :)

i was actually googling "food fashion photography shoot" in hopes of finding a fashion spread with scrumptious goodies in them to add to my photo. instead i happened to come across an amazing food stylist.. Debbie Wahl. All I can say is, she has an amazing portfolio and such vibrant presentation. beyond inspiring :) check out her site here ! (warning: subconscious salivating awaits ...)



feast your eyes.
