Donuts are hugely popular right now. The more colours and sprinkles the better which is great news for food photographers. There is just something special about sharing a box of donuts. They are an incredibly tempting treating. For this photo I wanted to capture the irresistible appeal of donuts, and I was fascinated by the moisture of the chocolate coating. For food items like this, I love going in close with a macro lens so you can almost taste the chocolate. How can you possibly resist?
When I think of spices, I think warmth and flavour. I think heat. Nothing expresses this more that deep red food. I absolutely adore Dukkah as a seasoning and love adding it to my eggs and vegetables. Between the texture and the colours, It makes for an interesting photographic subject. I wanted to showcase the colours while also nodding to its complimentary role so I used a shallow depth of field to highlight the dukkah. The hint of chilli in the background added the story of the dish.
