Sainsbury's / Soul Food

I was asked to shoot this lovely feature for Sainsbury's magazine. "Soul Food" the spread is about three women who cook to heal using food as therapy. (Most people cook out of necessity, for fun or a combination of the two).

We shot Jane Clarke (far right) on the Thursday then Serena Urquhart (far left) and Sinead McLeod (middle) on the Friday as they weren't available to shoot on the same day. The images were then stitched together to make the one photo. We managed to make it look like they were all shot together in the same room at the same time, not an easy task, it can be tricky to make it look convincing but I think it's safe to say that we pulled it off. Both photographs were shot using a mixture of daylight and studio flash to give it a nice natural feel.
