My cup overfloweth! Defintely a fun and challenging assignmnet this week! Shot for the cover layout seen here which of course guided my subject matter.
I've had enough chocolate for awhile... I went with a baking theme for my chocolate assignment since that's where most of this will get repurposed to. If you've never tried to do something like this, you have no idea how hard food stylists work and the magic they pull off when the rest of us start compromising. I opened a whole bag of Hershey kisses, those nice loops at the top just don't survive packaging and shipping well and white cotten gloves keep my fingerprints off but can't heal cosmetic defects from the factory. The fudge cubes are acrylic ice cubes smeared and placed (and then resmeared since it the slightest touch wiped it off) and the big blocks in the back are baking chocolate. The baking chocolate was cut around seperate edges to keep the factory edge forward and the cut edge hidden, a few squares in the middle with cut edges on all sides were free to become instant snacks during the shoot.
