This image was taken as food photography practice. The dish itself is my original recipe. I have been toying around with the idea of food photography for some time. One of my close friends is a chef and I have been influenced by this. Once the dish was plated the food was arranged and garnished with some chives and red pepper flakes to add texture. This image was taken with the flash to the side of the dish and a reflector directly above the dish.
