In 2015, I took a 3-week food photography class with Gina Weathersby and it was such an awesome class. If you read last week’s blog post, you saw one of my favorite images (coffee & cinnamon) that was taken during that course.

Over the years, Gina’s course has had a Facebook group that has been a bit quiet but as we kicked off 2018, Gina revamped the page and has us all inspired again. Our first prompt was this very, in depth Grapefruit Curd Tart.

I am a lover of baking as well as photography, therefore I knew I wanted to jump right into this. I have never made a successful curd, so why not spend hours in the kitchen on Super Bowl Sunday trying to perfect a fruit curd tart, just to take photographs of it. 

Well the crust was made twice and the curd took forever to set but let me tell you, the challenge was the best part of it. I love being challenged in the kitchen.  Once I had the tart all prepped, I set up my “scene” and used my new backdrop by Erickson Woodworks. It’s an absolute beauty and I already want to order 10 more! HA!

So yes, this recipe was hard but of course fun and I really love how the images came out. What do you think? Tell me in the comments below, I’d love to hear your thoughts!
