These pics were taken for Utah Business Magazine because Salt Lake Roasting Company won a People’s Choice Award. It was a really, really, really fun shoot. I could have stayed there for hours photographing all the beautiful pastries, made by their in-house pastry chef. The owner, John, was even kind enough to let me taste some of the yummy things I photographed… OH. MY. SCRUMPTIOUS-NESS.
I’m not a coffee-drinker, but these drinks looked gorgeous! The foam was so funny to photograph, though. I’d photograph it for a bit & it would shrink smaller & smaller until we’d have to replace it with a fresh, foamy top. It was particularly difficult to get a good shot of the tall glass, as my camera had a really difficult time focusing on the glass as it was so smooth, there wasn’t a lot to focus on. However, it was worth the effort. I really love that first pic with the fruit tart in the blurred background.
I fell in love with all the beautiful textures & variances in the pastries. There was so much detail to capture. The star-shaped pastries were really unique & I loved capturing the pastry layers & sugar crystals. My favorite pastry to taste, though, was the pear filled one (botton left). Yummy pastry wrapped around half of a sweet pear.
