It is fantastic to work with this appliance again, the product I know so well from the time when I worked closely with development and marketing to make this appliance locally relevant and looking at ways to improve the product from a culinary angle.

The days of using toothpaste in food photography are over. Essential is a good recipe. The current style is natural, real, sometimes even rustic in styling so that you can almost taste the food you see. Yes, these days you can make great photos with only an iPhone and some lighting tricks, we however prefer to shoot the Photos with professional equipment in our studio so that the photos are suitable for publishing as well.
