It was all a lie, I didn’t screw things up yesterday, just testing if I could synchronize the Nikon D700 TTL pop-up flash with the Elinchrom studio-flash with TTL on the camera. I fired off a few shots but it didn’t work. If anyone have the slightest idea of how to fire a Elinchrom BX Ri 600 with built-in pop-up flash I’d be happy to know.
So here are my pack shots for the Gastromat-assignment, the “costumer” wanted a clean and modern feel in the picture. One of the challenges I meet was choosing the right pack. Gastromat has recently changed their packing from a flat, green label to a shiny one. I don’t believe that the course leader had that in mind when making this assignment. I went around town looking for both packs and found both the shiny, reflective and the flat, green at Rema 1000 in Olav Tryggvassons Gate in Trondheim.
The other challenge was finding the right bowl and the right soup to go with the box. I found two containers at Interia, not with the right color but a somewhat cool shape. I went for a thick, creamy cauliflower with a leaf of lemon balm leaf (melissa officinalis) to decorate it all.
