Sweet Temptation

Sweet Temptation

‘Sweet’ can be used to describe appearance, a mood, or a taste. What happens when sweet moods and sweet foods collide? You end up with dessert, of course!

A sweet or cake can evoke powerful memories – young romance, the smile of a child or nostalgic memories.

Its sweet promise tempts you, and you cannot resist, whether it’s on your mind, in your mouth, or in a picture.

Desserts have their own styles, but globalisation has also made way for some commonalities and many nations’ desserts are recognized across the world. Different regions have their own distinct dessert cuisines. Italy has Tiramisu, France has crepes, Germany has Black Forest gateau, Belgium has chocolate, and China has moon cake – the list is endless. It doesn’t matter which type of dessert we’re talking about, they all have the power to entice.

However, when shooting desserts, it’s not enough to just convey how scrumptious they are. What you want is to get your audience salivating. To do this, we must first understand the dessert and what makes it delicious. Then we need to carefully select a background and atmosphere suitable for the dessert in question. Only then can we showcase its unique charms.

I haven’t gone into too much detail this time. Just take a look at these pictures. Do they make you feel a little bit tempted to reach for your spoon?
