Hi everyone, Katie here.
Well I promised I'd show you how Gloman's chili turned out. Looks pretty cool, huh! Last week Glogirly and I prepared Gloman's chili for the big photo shoot. (If you missed my Chili blog, just click HERE.) Gloman's advertising agency is producing a really cool cookbook of all the employee's favorite recipes. What a coincidence that Gloman is also a really cool photographer. He even got a really cool lens made just for really cool food photography.
It's called a tilt-n-shift shift lens. Don't worry, he can also use the lens on me so it's not a total waste.
I offered to go with Glogirly and the chili to the agency for the big shoot, but Glogirly said they have a strict no-cat policy in the kitchen studio. So while she was gone I spent my time doing Pilates on the kitchen rug at home... and looking for leftover kidney beans and sirloin hunks.
Meet Team Chili. That's Gloman in the middle with Patrick the art director. Patrick has an unusual smile. He's special.
The nice girl in the back is Laura. She is a food stylist and does really crazy things to food to make it look delectable in photographs.
She has paintbrushes and tweezers and even a giant steamer. Did you know they have to iron the food sometimes to make it look juicy and moist? I sure hope Glogirly keeps the giant steamer away from MY food.
Gloman says they are working really hard in this photo. I think they are playing Star Wars The Force Unleashed: Ultimate Sixth Edition. Or maybe Farmville.
I asked Gloman about submitting my favorite dish for the recipe book, but I still haven't heard back. Fine. I'm not crazy about sharing my food anyway.
