Shapeshifter 234/365 I've shot popcorn a few times now, and there's one thing that makes it really interesting as a subject... but I'll get to that in a minute. I'm a big fan of films (who isn't?). I love everything from slow, thoughtful stories, to blockbuster action, from subtitled pieces, to book adaptations. I've always enjoyed getting swept up by a new experience, and there are some that I come back to again and again, when I crave the familiar. But in recent years, there's something else, too. Since I started studying photography, I'm no longer just watching a film... I'm observing it. Luckily, this doesn't take away from my enjoyment. I say luckily because, well, it's not something I can turn off. Every shot, lighting decision, camera movement or focal length choice, I'm asking myself either how, or why it was done. Learning photography has opened the lid on cinematography for me, and I can never look at movies the same way again. Food, you might be interested to know, is the same way. When you photograph food, you have to look at it differently. Because reducing a tactile, scented, three dimensional object of primal desire into a collection of dots on a screen... well, something is lost. Partly, this is because there's a big difference between the food we eat every day, and our internal idea of what that food looks like. For example, close your eyes and think of an apple. Now go find a real apple... It's not the same thing. Apples come in all shapes and sizes, yet we tend to have one particular version of it in our head. There could be a book written about why this is, but for the moment, think about what this means for a photographer. If I want to take a picture of an apple, and for you to look at it and say "yep, that's an apple alright", I need to match, as close as I can, the image that you have in your head. I need to go from shop to shop, and find the most appley apple around. Otherwise, the image becomes about HOW the apple looks, rather than simply that there IS an apple. And that's where popcorn comes in... Each time I've needed to shoot a piece of popcorn, I've had to ask myself... what the heck does popcorn look like?! #judgeshootsfood365
Cross Section Collection 229/365 Reflection on the dissection of just a selection. Intricate interconnections, asymmetrical imperfections... bright as confections. Enough to inspire a predilection towards genuflection, like a certain Snow, after some introspection... I know, I know! "OBJECTION!" #judgeshootsfood365 #spoilers • • • • • • #CY365 #photoaday #creativelive #foodporn #vscofood #foodstylist #foodandwine #f52grams #huffposttaste #thekitchn #feedfeed @thefeedfeed #buzzfeast #foodphotography #heresmyfood @food #instaireland #irishfoodphotographer #irishphotographer #irishfoodstylist #stilllife #art #creative #inmykitchen #onmytable #lifeandthyme #tablescape #thatsdarling #heirloomtomatoes #crosssection
Link's Revenge 225/365 In this case, a dish best served hot. OoT fans will know what I'm talking about... #judgeshootsfood365 #cookincucco Aaaaand that's a wrap! 7 days, 7 Zelda recipes, in honour of @bingingwithbabish's #eatwhatyouwatch. It's been a blast, but now I'm looking forward to sleeping again... (I know this isn't actually a recipe from the game, but we all know it damn well should be! This is real simple, just a whole chicken patted dry, rubbed with oil, garlic powder, and celery salt, stuffed with a whole lemon and a bunch of lemongrass. Roast on a bed of carrot and onion at 170°C until the juices run clear, cooking time will depend on the size of your Cucco, I mean, Chicken! Serve accompanied by soothing ocarina melodies, and plenty of... thyme! 😆 Oh, and Andrew, if you're reading this, I just wanna say that I absolutely love what you do. Your videos are an inspiration to me, and every week I look forward to more. I've got my fingers crossed for this competition, it would be such an incredible honour to win. Congratulations on your book!) • • • • • • #365Project #CY365 #creativelive #vzcomade #foodstagram #foodstyling #foodstylist #foodandwine #f52grams #huffposttaste #thekitchn #feedfeed @thefeedfeed #buzzfeast #foodprnshare #foodphotography #heresmyfood @food #instaireland #artofvisuals #foodphotographer #tv_stilllife #zelda #cucco #ocarinaoftime @nintendo #nintendo #inmykitchen #tablescape
Totally Baked 224/365 Anybody for Tough Meat-Stuffed Pumpkin? No? How about Meltingly Tender Meat-Stuffed Pumpkin? 😉 I'm actually pretty surprised that you didn't do this recipe in your first episode, @bingingwithbabish! #eatwhatyouwatch This recipe is wicked easy, but it takes a little time. If you're going to have to slow cook meat, my favourite choice has to be oxtail. So flavourful, and full of beautiful sticky collagen. Cook it much like you would a boeuf bourguignon, browning the meat before sautéing onion, garlic, carrot, bay leaf, rosemary, and crushed tomatoes in the pan. Deglaze with red wine and a dash of worcestershire, throw everything into a pot (with lots more wine) and simmer, partially covered, for about 4 hours. The liquid should be reduced and the meat should be fork tender. Then simply hollow out your pumpkin, fill it with the stew and bake at medium for about an hour and a half (for a small pumpkin). Lift the lid and inhale deeply... when you come back to earth, serve with roasted pumpkin seeds sprinkled with sea salt. Koko would be proud. #judgeshootsfood365 #bakedinthekitchen • • • • • • #CY365 #photoaday #creativelive #foodporn #vscofood #foodstylist #foodandwine #f52grams #huffposttaste #thekitchn #feedfeed @thefeedfeed #buzzfeast #foodphotography #heresmyfood @food #instaireland #irishfoodphotographer #irishfoodstylist #stilllife #creative #inmykitchen #onmytable #tablescape #fromscratch #jj_still_life #breathofthewild #zelda @nintendo #nintendo
Literal Fruit Pie 221/365 There's something just so perfect about cartoon food. All Link needs is some Tabantha Wheat, some Goat Butter, a bit of fruit and a pot over an open fire... and he can make a flawless fruit pie. Which appears to be a bloody great big pie crust, with whole fruit chucked on top. For @bingingwithbabish's #eatwhatyouwatch, I tried my best to recreate it exactly as it looks in-game, guessing at the fruit based on a few coloured pixels. For my money, the pie uses oranges, pears, blueberries, pineapple and... honestly something that looks most like pomegranates, but I settled on plums, because who in their right mind would stick a whole pomegranate on top of a pie?! C'mon Link, get it together. Chop up all of these fruits, with the exception of the orange, just use the peel, for both zest and pectin. Throw in a pan with sugar, and simmer until tender and no longer watery, before being let cool and set a little. Oh, and take out the orange peel! In the meantime, the shortcrust dough gets made and rests. When everything's ready, assemble and cook your giant pie! Then, fry some thick slices/halves of the fruit in butter and sugar to caramelise them. Top the pie with whipped cream, the fried fruit, and a sprig of mint to complete the look. Andrew, I tried to get a cross-section shot 'cause I know that shit is your jam, but between the filling not being set enough yet and the cream melting slightly from the pie that was still hot after 2 freaking hours(!)... it, uh, wasn't in a cooperative mood. #judgeshootsfood365 #somuchfruit (P.S., this photo is for the 9th. I haven't gone to bed tonight (last night?), because this goddamn pie took longer than expected at every step! On the plus side, the other day was my birthday, so, birthday pie! I literally ate a quarter of this before editing. Soooo good! 🤤 • • • • • • #365Project #CY365 #creativelive #vzcomade #foodstagram #foodstyling #foodstylist #foodandwine #f52grams #huffposttaste #thekitchn #feedfeed @thefeedfeed #buzzfeast #foodprnshare #foodphotography #heresmyfood @food #instaireland #artofvisuals #foodphotographer #tv_stilllife @nintendo #nintendo #zelda #breathofthewild #botw #fruitpie
Yeto's Soup 220/365 I just realised that the @bingingwithbabish #eatwhatyouwatch challenge to make a dish from Zelda didn't actually specify it had to be from Breath of the Wild... 🤔 So here's my recreation of Yeto's... ummm... medicinal soup, from Twilight Princess, which I freakin' loved. This healthful soup is made from Ordon Pumpkin, Ordon Goat's Cheese, and, ehh... the appetisingly named Reekfish. Of which, the eponymous chef made liberal use of its head. Serve in a glass bottle. #judgeshootsfood365 #nojustno (This photo was achieved only through the incredible patience and helpful suggestions of my friend John Jack Boylan. It was just one of those shoots that did not want to work, but he saw it through to the end, bless his cotton socks) • • • • • • #CY365 #photoaday #creativelive #foodporn #vscofood #foodstylist #foodandwine #f52grams #huffposttaste #thekitchn #feedfeed @thefeedfeed #buzzfeast #foodphotography #heresmyfood @food #instaireland #irishfoodphotographer #irishphotographer #irishfoodstylist #stilllife #zelda #nintendo @nintendo #twilightprincess #soup #creative #inmykitchen
You Look Good Enough To Eat 218/365 Edible flowers, like this Marigold, will forever be a novelty to me. I'm used to trying to plate food so that it looks beautiful, but these things do all the work themselves! #whpinthekitchen #judgeshootsfood365 #thatsmeoutofajob (P.S., Thanks for indulging my current thirst for these minimalist, high contrast shots this week. I've got a fun little challenge planned for the coming week to help shake things up a little 😘) • • • • • • #CY365 #photoaday #creativelive #foodporn #vscofood #foodstylist #foodandwine #f52grams #huffposttaste #thekitchn #feedfeed @thefeedfeed #buzzfeast #foodphotography #heresmyfood @food #instaireland #irishfoodphotographer #irishphotographer #irishfoodstylist #stilllife #fineart #inmykitchen #onmytable #lifeandthyme #tablescape #thatsdarling #jj_still_life #tv_stilllife
The Wheat From The Chaff 217/365 Playing around some more with my ear of wheat. #whpinthekitchen It's incredible to think of the millennia of cultivation, generation after generation, that went into this. The technological breakthroughs, the advancements in agricultural techniques... all of them leading to that field of wheat growing just outside my door. We have more food being produced now than ever before in human history. Good thing too, because there are more people now than ever before as well. In the Irish language, the word for the famine that caused the population of this island to drop by half translates to "The Great Hunger". Billions of people live on this planet, and if it wasn't for simple grasses like these, billions would go hungry. #judgeshootsfood365 #foodforthought • • • • • • #365Project #CY365 #creativelive #vzcomade #foodstagram #foodstyling #foodstylist #foodandwine #f52grams #huffposttaste #thekitchn #feedfeed @thefeedfeed #buzzfeast #foodprnshare #foodphotography #heresmyfood @food #instaireland #artofvisuals #foodphotographer #tv_stilllife #fineart #creative #lifeandthyme #wheat #agriculture #crops #jj_forum_1983
#MeetTheArtist Swipe left to meet Colin Judge aka @c.judge.shoot. Colin Judge is a creative food and product photographer based in Dublin, Ireland (but is always ready to travel). Through a curious set of circumstances, he found himself learning how to use a camera shortly after finishing his Bachelor of Marketing in 2011. He promptly threw his degree in the trash and threw himself into the world of photography. He became art director, stylist, chef and retoucher on all of his personal projects. These skills that he developed over time, paired with his background in marketing, allow him to work effectively in every stage of production. Colin's photos are a product of his love of details, his passion for good design, and his sense of humour. A self-taught digital photographer from the start, experimentation was key in shaping how he works. This relentless desire to try new things ensures that his images are always fresh and exciting.

Coke Float 211/365 Yo dawg, I heard you like floats. So I made your glass float while I make your float! #whptalentshow No better excuse to experiment with making one of my favourite childhood desserts! The classic Cola and Vanilla ice-cream is indisputably great, but there are so many brilliant variations. Orange Soda and Vanilla for a liquid Super Split... Root Beer and Vanilla for a North American favourite... But my new all time winner is alcoholic Ginger Beer with Strawberry Cheesecake ice-cream. It's a full on dessert with a fiery kick, and it'll get you buzzed to boot! I foresee many more of these in my future. Yes. Many more... #judgeshootsfood365 #gimmegimmegimme (P.S., one of the failed experiments was Cookies & Cream ice-cream. Anything chocolate flavour doesn't really gel with the other tastes. I'd be curious to try out caramel though...) • • • • • • #365Project #CY365 #creativelive #foodstagram #foodstyling #foodstylist #hautecuisines #foodandwine #f52grams #huffposttaste #thekitchn #feedfeed @thefeedfeed #buzzfeast #foodprnshare #foodphotography #heresmyfood @food #instaireland #artofvisuals #foodphotographer #tv_stilllife #float #dessertporn #summerdessert #cokefloat #creative #howisummer #jj_forum_1983
