A Donna Hay Photography Challenge14
I like to use any opportunity to learn food styling and photography, that comes my way.
For a while, I have been following Simone’s Donna Hay Styling and Photography Challenge . The styling and photograph to be challenged is truly brilliant and Simone does a great job of explaining her version and giving her readers a wonderful insight into concepts of both – styling and photography, she used. I have always wished to be a part of the challenge, but have not up until now.
The challenge this time seemed deceptively easy. Not sure, if I did justice to the original picture, however, I had fun working with the food in raw as well as capturing the salad in two totally different props.
Here’s what the original photograph of the Goat’s Cheese, Lemon and Pea Pasta looked in Donna Hay magazine (February 2011 -Issue 55) as photographed by William Meppem and styled by David Morgan. (Information Courtesy: Simone)

Here’s what I could come up with……I know…a long way to go before, I can get any close to the original. It was a great learning experience – Right from assessing the angle of the shot, the proportion of pasta-arugula-peas-lemon and goat cheese. Even the way the cheesed looks coated with ground black pepper.
It’s no where a match for the challenge, but I am glad I dared to participate in the challenge and in the process, picked up a few tips and tricks.
Thank you, Simone! I truly enjoyed working on the challenge.
And, for the recipe….I followed what Simone provided as a part of the post on the challenge.
Wish I had a chance to enjoy the salad…oh! those allergies!!
