This month I had the pleasure of photographing some rather delicious chocolates made by a friend of a friend who is starting an online chocolate business.
The Chilli Chocolate Company, which will be launching soon, specialises in chocolate with a bit of a kick. Having tasted a few sneaky samples whilst shooting, I can vouch for the kick they have - delicious but with a nice small amount of heat to go along with it.
The photos were all for online use so a nice white background was required. The chocolates were shot in a light tent with studio lights from multiple sides to ensure a shadowless look. I added the reflections and shadow in post production to give it a nice gloss.
Product photography is a nice break from portrait and event photography - I like it a lot, especially when the end product is perishable, edible and delicious!
Here's a selection of the chocolates for your viewing pleasure.
