Not many people could get me to want to turn Vegan. If you’re looking for Vegan food in Charlottesville, look no further than Botanical Fare. One of the things that I love about this place is that they somehow find a way to make a dish that is not typically Vegan, use Vegan products in it, and blow my mind. Like a Vegan charcuterie board. What the heck?! When Ryan of Botanical Fare said that she had come up with a Vegan charcuterie board, I thought no way. And then I preceded to eat a vast majority of it because it was so good.
Taking pictures of food that’s THAT delicious is always a challenge. Sure, I use cool backdrops like my Replica Surfaces and available light (I can use flash if I want – but there’s just something about natural shadows and window light that I really enjoy). But ultimately, the pictures have to tell you how good it is. It has to resonate.
I hope that they resonate for you. And if you’re in Charlottesville and you’re looking for amazing food on the mall, let me tell you that you don’t have to be Vegan to love what they’ve got going on at Botanical Fare.
PS If anyone else wants me to come take pretty photos of their food, I’m ALL IN. Send me a message. Let’s talk more.
