SLF : The Beauty of Red and White
And now, one year later... I decide to use the popular Indonesian Dessert/Snack as my food photography object for the special edition of SLF during the month of August. The Beauty of Red and White, that's the theme for SLF this month. By now you should know why Red and White, correct? Both are the colours of Indonesian Flag. Red represents courage, while white represents purity of intent.
For the food; to represent the Red Colour, I chose Kue Ku (Moulded Glutinous Rice Cake with Mung Bean Filling). We can find this cake in red, pink or green colour in markets. Lupis Ketan (Steamed Glutinous Rice Cones) that is served with grated coconut and brown sugar syrup was choosen to represent the White Colour.
Because I live in Jakarta, ohooo... it's easy to find these Indonesian tidbits in local market. Just to let you know, I bought the cakes in my favorite 'Majestic Market', in Kebayoran area, South Jakarta. Easy peasy!
For the props; I just used my old stuffs from my kitchen cupboard. Only the cake stand that I borrowed from my mom's kitchen. Hopefully I can borrow it forever :)
... Happy Independence Day, Indonesia!http://vsamperuru.multiply.com/photos/album/11/SLF_The_Beauty_of_Red_and_White
