I met up with the talented Executive Chef Scott Cooper at Le Papillon in San Jose to photograph one of their finest desserts – the Grand Marnier Soufflé. This particular dessert has a very short window for photographing – much more so than ice cream, in fact. As soon as it comes out of the oven it starts deflating, so you really have to capture it while it’s piping hot and fresh. I captured the process of Scott pouring the sauce over the fresh berries; I just had to start shooting early and keep going until the deflating dessert was spent – which took all of a minute or so. Here’s a few photos from this quick food photography session in San Jose:
