Honeymoon bakery

Honeymoon Bakery provides delicious sweets and homemade pastries to Casa Luna restaurant in Ubud, Bali. It is a traditional pastry shop managed by the Australian Janet Denefee, a culinary reference on the island.

The commission this time was to create a photographic series with the most typical desserts of the Bakery and some special birthday orders.

One more please!

For the compositions we quickly locate a window with natural light and put a wooden table next to it. This way, with natural sidelight we created a lot of volume in the compositions without practically needing artificial light sources as support.

The choice of wood as a background for the stills was not a coincidence. We wanted the background to evoke the warmth of homemade products and for this purpose, wood seemed the ideal background.

One of the compositions that works best for us is to show the finished dishes along with some of their ingredients to dress the composition and this way make it more interesting. Thus, a chocolate cake can be accompanied by eggs, flour, ounces of chocolate, butter … we can even incorporate into the composition the various cutlery with which it has been prepared.

It is also important to choose suitable plates and food supports. Normally we choose them based on the size of the dessert or the sweet, its textures and its colours. They can be wooden bases, flat plates or with coloured ornaments. It is important before shooting to know all the options available in the kitchen.

We can eat bread at any time…
