Lemongrass Ginger Infusion

    Newer Older

    The perfect brew if you're feeling a little under the weather or just need a soothing pick-me-up! We have a lemongrass bush in our kitchen garden, so it's always at hand.

    I managed to hit three themes with this one: Fusion, Motion, and Curved!

    Lighting: An SB-900 in a 28" softbox camera left, and an SB-800 pointed at the background wall. I also used some grey paper and a black-covered reflector to the right and left to create the dark areas in the water and glass. I turned off all the lights in the room to remove extra reflections, and kept the flash power as low as possible to freeze the motion of the (boiling hot!) water.

      Wow! I love this. The white, yellow and green colours give me an urge to drink gin... Brilliant.

      Funny you should mention gin! I also made Lemongrass Ginger Ale, which involves simmering pureed ginger, lemongrass, & chilis in water and sugar, then straining it. The resulting syrup is enjoyed with club soda, lime juice, and if you like, gin. (I, for one, like!).
