Hefty Foodie’s Quick Bites and Random Cravings: Hershey’s Special Dark – Sugar Free
I’m a big fan of Dark Chocolates; it has a more pronounced chocolate taste and is not too sweet.
Second on my Quick Bites and Random Cravings series of posts – Hershey’s Special Dark Chocolate. Like I said on my previous quick bites post; This is not like my ordinary restaurant review post, it’s about some random cravings that I munch on or quick bites / snacks that I really like. I’m also doing this to practice and improve my food photography skills with a more controlled lighting setup.
Like I said in my previous posts I’m not really a professional photographer, but taking pictures of food is one thing that I enjoy most (other than eating ) when I blog about my food trips. I used 3 lights for this shoot and I really think anyone can do this, it’s really quite simple.
It’s really simple setup used two desk lamps to light the sides and some tracing paper to diffuse the light. I also used a roll of the tracing paper for the background and place a small light there to illuminate the background. Oh yeah enough of the photography and whatnots, I’ll continue with this awesome chocolate treat.
Oh yes, it’s sugar free! Guilt free indulgence it is! It’s a nice treat for the sweet tooth without having to worry about your sugar levels so that’s always nice.
Though one thing that’s really grueling when taking pictures of food is fighting the urge to grab a fork / spoonful of the yummy stuff that’s right in front of you. Seriously, it’s not an easy feat! =))
For this shot I stacked some of the chocolate bars, I wanted to make a more interesting shot so I tried to melt some of it and dropped a dollop of the chocolate at the top of the stack. Though I’m not really knowledgeable in food styling so it’s not as natural looking as I’d like it to be.
Love how the chocolate is not too sweet and had a strong chocolate taste, its dark chocolate so that’s given. It’s a simple and yummy chocolate treat for our sweet tooth’s delight.
