More Macaroons!

There is a shelf at Carol Hacker's prop house that I am always drawn to. It has all this old well worn pewter and tarnished silver. I always thought I would do a very classic still life with some of these and I think I have pulled it off.

First here are some tests of different possible setups. I like the one in the middle best.

Now tests to refine the lighting and figure out what color Macaroons I want to use. And once again my trusty assistant helping himself to the stand ins.

And the final image....

Feel Good Bakery

There is a great bakery in Alameda called Feel Good Bakery. I love their macaron's and have wanted to shoot some of their pastries for some time. I finally got around to it. I ended up shooting images of all three of the things you see here. Loved the Russian Tea Cookies on the right!
