Tasty treats that look sublime?
Kim Forman at Vintage Fare restaurant in Lincoln, Illinois, makes it look easy. Of course, it's not. But Kim is a pro.
A couple weeks ago I posted some photos I made for Vintage Fare featuring Kim's salads and sandwiches. Last week we made some photos featuring chocolate desserts, shown here.
There's great light in the restaurant's new location, and I used that as my main light for many of the pictures we made. The setup shot for the cake below (which was delicious, by the way) uses a large window to the right for the main light. I added a small hotshoe flash diffused with some parchment paper behind the cake as a kicker (you can see the highlights on that side of the cake) and bounced the same light off silver reflector to lighten the shadows.
Stop in for lunch at Vintage Fare (600 Broadway in Lincoln) to enjoy some of Kim's great cooking some time.
