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!

Oh Shannon! These are so gorgeous! LOVE your styling, and color choices - those blues/ purples - perfect complimentary colors for the grapefruit curd. And that background, so pretty. (I'm going to look that up.) Your lighting has some great punch to it - did you do much editing, or was that the quality of the given light?
Yes, agreed, this recipe was not an easy, quick whip it up in an hour desert. But, as you said, it felt good to meet the challenge.
I'm so happy to see our group filled with life again, and so happy that you took time out of your busy schedule of growing and creating all your wonderfully natural products, to hop on this train!

This looks so pretty! I agree that the blue background makes those yellow and ruby reds pop. I also want to eat it right now! Sounds so refreshing.
