A pun on seasons – I wanted to capture both autumn and spices for this soup photo. (See recipe here) Soups, in particular, often need a little help to shine. So I wanted to use spices and fall props to give this soup the personality it deserves.
Pumpkin cookies are a perfect subject for building up fall food photography skills. I had a few ideas when photographing this recipe: feature the paisley design, complement the ‘spiced orange’ color of the cookies, and capture the spirit of fall. If I could get all of those in 1 photo, that would be ideal.
