So my research into food and fashion has lead me to look at still life accessory advertisements that include food. Some of the images below use colour to highlight their product whereas some use it to contrast their product making it stand out. The 'Exotics' double page spread worked well as the colours compliment the products and stand out on the white background. It looks clean and sharp. I also like the shoes on the citrus backgrounds, colour has been used wisely here and it pays off in my opinion.
