Dayum. Impressive. Although I look at them, and something does feel too polished. Too rendered. Like Beowulf or something.
And to that end, it seems like more work than actually doing food photography.
Hi! I'm the designer who made these series.
First, thanks for the comment. I know that some items might be "too rendered." As much as I want to approximate those nuisance, I have to admit that it's too hard. So instead of me labouring through those details, I decided to go on a more macro view of the work.
But hey! I'll take that comment to improve the series as I go along!
As per using photography, the list of ingredients I'm planning to work on may not be available in the Philippines. Doing a shoot, editing them, styling them (considering I'm not a food styling) won't be cost-effective for me to finish the series the way I intended to be. So the best way to handle those logistic issues, I decided to stay on my comfort zone and actually work on it that way.
Love it. I actually like how fake yet real it looks. Retouching at it's best!
Thanks for more insight. Very cool to hear that you're working to improve as you go.
Either way. I'm still impressed! Looking forward to seeing the series evolve.
PS. Love seeing the layer break down!
