Pierre Marcolini’s Chocolate-Covered Marshmallows
The hardest of all foods to photograph, I’ve learned, are chocolate-covered marshmallows.
The bright, fluffy, vanilla-flecked cubes of sweet, airy marshmallow in contrast to the thin, intensely-flavored coating of bittersweet chocolate certainly presents a challenge.
I futzed around a bit, trying to figure out how to show the lofty-white cubes in juxtaposition to the coating of pure, dark chocolate. They’re such diverse colors and textures that I tried several variations and lighting situations, until I decided that they’d looked best with a piece broked off.
So I took a bite out of one.
Then I took another bite.
And then, I stopped shooting…
…and ate the whole pack.
