RECIPE CONTENT CREATION - FOOD STYLING & PHOTOGRAPHY, KIRAN'S SPICE KITS, JULY 2020

A quick look behind the scenes on an afternoon content creation shoot, working remotely from my home studio for Kiran's spice kits. 

This exciting start up is making a great name for itself selling delicious blends of spices from around the world, bringing fresh, tasty and easy meals to the family dinner table. 

Currently selling at local markets and fairs, soon to be selling more online and in stores.  What a beautiful product and brand!

 

THE BRIEF.

To shoot three products for marketing and social media content in a light and dark setting in line with the existing brand assets, matching the modern, vibrant packaging and bold flavours.

 

THE WORK.

We started off by selecting three of the flavours and organising the ingredients so we had a meat, fish and veggie option.   

We cooked each dish as it was shot, starting with this beautiful African vegetable curry and then chicken thighs in Swahili spices.

Using natural light and simple aids each product and dish was prepped for the camera using very high tech food styling tools ;p  The house smelt amazing!

The styling was made very easy by all the beautiful spices Kiran supplied. (And yes, I spend a lot of time on the floor!)

We shot three dishes to an agreed time and budget, the session was made speedier by using some shop bought items and sticking to an overhead angle so the set up and styling was quick.
