Behind the scenes-Shooting Egyptian food for editorial use

Shoot The evolution of Egyptian food
Client Enigma magazine
Date April 2014
Location Cairo Egypt

We had a long way to reach n to this shoot, we planned shooting on location in many several restaurants and outlets in Old Cairo, the magazine team took the initiative to contact them, but sadly it all ended up by total rejection from the owners.

So we did another alternative by setting our food up, no styling at my place using as much homey props and we did more than that by getting a complete foul (fava beans) tray from a street seller near by.

Got as well a separate koshary (UN mixed) every ingredient separated and it was layered to get a unique fresh homey look.

For dessert we did have a rice and apricot pudding placed in several glasses.
