I just got my first copy of a book I’ve been working on from August until December of last year. It’s called Smör – Kärna, bryna, baka (Butter – churn, brown, bake). The recipemaker and author of the book is Johan Hedberg, you can see more of him and read more by him over at his blog Matgeek.se. A big part in the making of this book is also Maria Nilsson at the publishing company Natur & Kultur and the graphic designer Karin Schaefer. So the book is all about butter, how to make it yourself in different ways and also lots of wonderful recipes. Many of the photos are shot at an old farm in a old shed with natural light. A soft natural light coming through a small window or old doorway, no sunshine. We also decided that I were to shoot some images of the Swedish landscape to complement the food images, which I did. I really enjoyed that more than I thought I would and I’m going to do that much more. I have plans for posters and prints which I will get back to soon.
Here are some of the images from the book, I will show more later. If you want the book you can buy it here.
