I continued my struggle with photography a@keepingwiththetimes
capture the whipping of the aquafaba (chickpea water) into fluffy white clouds, the melting of the chocolate into syrup and the freshest raspberries in my first shot. After some 30 shots of slight variations, I finally settled on this one. I was dying to move on at this point. Frustration level high😆 I had issues with styling, size proportions and my fluffing cloud deflating as I was taking too long to set up with different arrangements.
I thought I will try a different way of capturing the prep work involved. I already cleaned up a bit so there was no fluffy foamy goodness to show. Only the chocolate syrup and raspberries were left and there they go on the backdrop. And the roses. Somehow the flowers always end up center stage in my shots. Is this food photography or floral photography? I digress... The scene looked naked so I added the napkin. Kind of interesting. But no food shown really. So it's a still life 😄 The appearance of the chocolate syrup is kind of messed up but i don't know how to fix it.
I am now a believer that aquafaba can in fact turn into foam. The texture, of course, is not the same as a mousse. And I can see why vegans will want this to be part of their repertoire. I froze a couple of them and liked them a lot frozen. I am happy to make some in the future as a frosty of sorts.
