One of the most important aspect of doing good photography is the way Photographer connects with the subject. Here we are talking about passionate foodies who are always there to try new things and experiments with different types of food ingredients. If such a passionate foodie has also a parallel passion for photography, then it completely changes the game. Deeba's Food Photographs show that power of expression and passion for both food & photography. Let's check out this Photo Journey with delicious photographs clicked by Deeba Rajpal, one of the leading Indian Food Blogger.
I have been following some of the leading Food Bloggers in the country who always make you think about the way they create mind blowing images of food and how they always maintain their own style. Today if look at 100 food photographs clicked by different Food Photographers/bloggers, I can clearly identify photographs clicked by Deeba & Sangeeta. They have their own style of expression and way of executing the shoot.
Deeba Rajpal is a non conformist, passionate & 'rabid' baker and blogger from Gurgaon, for whom visual appeal holds as much significance as healthy and delectable food. Any idea that grabs her fancy becomes a springboard for creativity. A ‘locavore’, a ‘bake-a-holic’, an ‘absolut’ baker are synonymous with who she is, a reflection of the artisan baker. Her mantra – ‘Bake From Scratch’. With the lack of international baking ingredients in the Indian kitchen, join her in culinary adventures as she tries to conquer the oven!
Deeba regularly blogs at- http://www.passionateaboutbaking.com/
'Passionate About Baking is a food blog about baking ,cooking, photography, food trends, cuisines and cultures. It's mainly about 'Doing Food From Scratch'. The blogger is based in India where often often her biggest challenge is the non-availability of baking ingredients. Her current obsession remains baking with fruit, exploring new ingredients, alternative flours, gluten free foods etc. She enjoys food styling, food photography, recipe development and cookbook/product reviews, and hopes to publish a cookbook one day.'
Initially I thought of keeping myself silent because her photographs speak a lot about her personality as a Food Blogger and passionate photographer who strongly believes in best possible presentation of good food. But then I thought that it would not be appropriate to introduce her silently. Definitely we shall be sharing more of her work in another post, where you can simply enjoy good food through your eyes without much reading :)
Few months back when I wrote about Snageeta Khanna, I had thought of doing some experiments around Food Photography at home but couldn't find time. I have personally learned a lot from Sangeeta's photographs and Deeba's work as well. And I must admit that I want to imitate their styles of Food Photography. But imitating Deeba's style can be very expensive for me :) ... btw, I love the way she uses utensils of appropriate designs with different types of food items.
In past, I was fortunate enough to meet Deeba during many of the blogger meets which happen in the city. And wish that one of the blogger meet just focus on photographing Food Items, where we can learn from each other. Hope someone reads this part of the post and arrange something for us to meet again & click with our cameras :)
So just enjoy this beautiful Journey by Deeba and share your feedback through comments...
