Armed with summer’s best and freshest offerings, Real Simple offers delicious and effortless 3-ingredient recipes in their August issue. Christopher Baker continues his collaboration with the magazine, shooting the cover, feature story, and a new section called “Secretly Simple.” The feature story “3 Ingredient Summer Recipes” opens with elegantly plated raw ingredients. Prop stylist Jeffrey Miller set the plates on backgrounds of varying shades of white, off-white, and blue-grey, making a clean grid.
Each plate’s contents gives the reader a clue as to what’s in store on the following pages where the finished dishes are revealed. Comments Baker on the raw ingredient grid concept, “It gives the reader something to think about – it’s a little bit of a puzzle for them, to figure out what’s what. Visually, I thought it’d be more striking than continually shooting close-ups.”
