Aam ka Panna | Raw Mango Cooler | Re-visiting Through the Lens

I’ve talked a bit here & here about my food photography journey, changes, growth, some good & some bad shots. To this effect I’ve been reading & reading a lot especially in the web world. Everywhere people talk about similar journey and how is one tempted to change their earlier photographs & then they decide to leave them un-touched to show the growth.

I totally agree. Even I would not like my readers to feel that I was always a pro in food photography. No! This is far from truth. It still is very far but I’m taking baby steps & for me that counts a lot!

So I decided to re-visit some of my old recipes/ photos and re-shoot them. The wonder in these photographs is not the recipe or the glass but for me it is the amazing difference with exactly the same camera & same eye. Ya, I am talking about my eye ;)

My camera is still very much the same – Canon Powershot AS 710 IS – a point & shoot & I still have the same eyes. :D

Here is the first re-visit – Aam ka Panna a.k.a Raw Mango Cooler – Beat the heat!

I tried various backgrounds, some shots are clicked with my easy & cheap DIY lightbox, some using natural light, some overhead shots, some with rustic background, etc.

All of them gave a different look & feel to the drink. I liked many & couldn’t decide which conveys my mood most. It will be nice & fun if you tell me which appeals most to you & may be take a guess at the light used!

My last shot is my Husband special – Panna Martini. He had a brainwave & decided to have a shot of Vodka with Panna. He was quite in his cups when he made this, so don’t remember the exact vodka, panna & soda combination. Go ahead and make your own & share with me too. :)

Both my kids have taken to Panna like fish takes to water. Can’t find fault, in this heat, nothing beats it as well as Aam ka Panna!
