Photo of the Week #234
I stepped a little out of my comfort zone last week and took some product shots for Mendocino, California-based Mendocino Soups, a company that prides itself on preparing natural soups brimming with fresh and complex flavors, free of artificial preservatives. Tasked with capturing photos of various soups alongside their key ingredients, I scoured my local produce markets for items like coconut and ginger “with character.”
It definitely took longer than I expected to arrange all the ingredients just so, but I’m pleased with the results, especially this one of Thai Fish Stew. The best part? Delicious soup all week!
