Wanted to get back on the food cart in this week’s blog post. I thought to myself, “What kind of food should I have just hanging around the studio? Why, truffles, naturally!” So, a stop at For the Love of Chocolate was necessitated.

I had imagined a stack of chocolates against a dark background with a soft directional side light, and I did work toward that, but took a more traditional approach to begin. Seeing the truffles in the box made me think of them as backgammon pieces, and so, I went that way, too.

While I don’t think anything “special” happened here, it was fun to work with and, while doing a bit of retouch, I enjoyed thinking of the close up surfaces of the candies as large planets. Plus, now there are truffles in the studio.
