I got a call from one of the photo editors at The Boston Globe who was doing a story on the fickle food shopper. Discussing where people go for what product.
They knew what they wanted in the shot, but as far a final execution that was up for creative interpreting. It was going to be shot on simple white background because they were putting text around the image pointing to the different food items.
I had some ideas for the front cover and inside spread shot (see really bad sketches below) But as long as my food stylist and I knew what those sketches meant, that's all that mattered :)
They needed the photos in two days for text placement and to go to print. We succeeded and you can see below that it worked out well.
