Tomato and Eggplant Appetizer, by Bashar Alaeddin

This image was captured for a client in 2010. A well-known established restaurant specializing in lunch-time food. The brief was to capture the juiciness of this appetizer which they wanted to use for an advertising campaign and for their social media. Even though they had asked me to capture a wider angle to showcase its height as an appetizer since it came in 6 layers, which I did, however luckily they ended up choosing this image as it provoked more of an appetising emotion and the close-up details of the melting cheese was a winner.
