Food Porn – Macarons

I love macarons, but try as I might I’ve never been able to successfully get them to look like in those glossy food magazines. My macarons run all over the baking tray and end up looking like tiles off a roof. 

But hey, for every failed macaron baker there are dozens of successful ones out there. And for every successful macaron baker there are dozens of talented food photographers who make viewers drool over the page.

These days I buy my maracons from the shops…but writing this short post has started me thinking about getting some store-bought macarons and setting up a photoshoot of them. I’m kicking myself for not having considered this before now. Maybe it’s because I so terribly wanted to show off my photography and also be able to claim that I actually made the macarons myself?

Well, then…I’ve an idea now to marry 2 of my favourite things in one photography project – macarons and my collection of vintage and not-so-vintage-but-quirky teacups. Actually, make that 3 of my favourite things…I get to eat all the evidence when I’m done. 😄

Meanwhile, however, here are just some of my favourite macaron photos, curated from my Pinterest board funnily enough named “Macarons – Food Porn”. I’m aiming for the same pastel shades. It’s all in the presentation, of course. And the eating. Ahem.

These are just the photos that inspire me. Quite probably most of these were taken using high-end professional DSLR cameras, but no matter, I have my Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge and a whole lotta Apps I can use to produce similar effects.

Can you tell I’m trying to justify my weight gain and empty wallet from this new project? 😉
