Black, White, Blue – Food Photography Series by Greg Stroube

Using a limited color palette, Greg Stroube created 6 new stills for his series of ‘Black, White, and Blue Foods.’ It’s a cool challenge, considering how unusual these colors are in the culinary context.

That surface? Charred cedar. Greg took a torch to it in true ‘shou-sugi-ban’ fashion, a Japanese technique which preserves the wood and creates a unique finish.

Greg incorporated a few spots of other colors here and there, allowing the color space to breathe while keeping the palette restrained.
