You can’t use blue!!!

I was told by several people a long time ago that there was some very firm rules about food photography and one of them was, never I repeat NEVER use blue or green backgrounds because it was really bad for the food.

It would set off the colours in a really negative way and should be avoided like the plague.
If there is one thing I have learnt is that the only rule is that there is no rules. I remember that I did read in a book about typography is that you should learn all the rules and then brake them and that is a method I have always felt comfortable with.
In Reykjavik there is a Restaurant and Hotel/hostel called Bazaar Oddsson that I have done some work with and the dominant color there is a lavender blue in the interior and the furniture.
The client really wanted to use the colour as a theme so why not break the rules and I hope you like the colours.

There is another rule broken here and that is to never use ring flash to shoot food, In the right circumstances it is really nice ;-).
