Spring has finally arrived in Edmonton after a long and cold winter and what better way to celebrate it’s arrival than with a ‘Spring Fling’ burger at Delux Burger Bar. This month’s burger was created by Celebrity Chef Tina Carson who is the District Manager of On-Premise for Corby Distilleries – distributors of fine spirits such as Absolut Vodka. Her burger is a 6 oz lean turkey burger topped with thinly sliced prosciutto, apple-cranberry compote, melted brie, fresh spinach, and grainy mustard aioli on whole wheat flat bread. As if that flavor combination wasn’t reason enough to try out Tina’s burger, $1 from every burger sold will go to support the Heart and Stroke Foundation.
We setup again at the West Edmonton Mall location for Tina’s photo shoot and decided since she works for Corby Distilleries, we would try to incorporate the wine rack near the bar into the background. For this photo shoot I was able to light Tina using my new Firefly octagon softbox which is a lightweight and portable softbox that you can use with a small flash unit. It’s a great portable solution that is quick and easy to setup and allows you to work fast in tight locations while still providing beautiful soft light similar to what you’d get working with a full size studio strobe and traditional softbox. Here are a few photographs from our shoot.
