Peaches and Cinnamon

Two of my favorite flavors in one unique dessert—Canned peaches baked with cinnamon.

I love peaches. I always store a can in the office in case of some sweet craving that I often find irresistable. So some weeks ago. it crossed my mind to try using peaches as a subject once in a while.

I did this shoot with Giannina to test out my painted wood baseboard. The shade of green looked perfect in the sample color chart, but it took on a pastel hue when I applied it. I guess Christmas is indeed in the air, because this looks like a great recipe for Christmas eve. Add a bit of mint leaves and anais, you'll probably start hearing jolly holly Christmas songs!

We did a second set just in case. I really don't know which one I like better. When I work on production for a food shoot, I usually prepare two set-ups in case the first one doesn't work out as planned. My only problem with this one is that the red plate doesn't contrast well with the cinnamon sticks and anais.

Giannina had to torch the edge of the peaches to make it look as if it's just been brought out of the oven. The Cinnamon sticks smelled so nice that I couldn't resist dipping my finger in the syrup to sample the multitude of flavor.

I like the first one better. I agree the cinnamon sticks don't stand out it the second shot. But amazing photography all the same! Looking forward to your other posts!

Thanks Ana. I'm glad you like the green board, it wasn't the exact green shade I had in mind, but I'm glad I'm getting a positive feedback for it.:)
