A lot of cool images and fun photo ideas pass through our inboxes, but rarely do they come with such punning potential.
If you think the annual pancake toss is flipping boring, why not avoid all the usual crepe and try a new photography technique that starts in your kitchen and ends looking through your wideangle pancake lens.
Lyle’s Golden Syrup has come up with a new way for photographers to celebrate Pancake Day by creating a new series of edible three-dimensional ‘panscapes’ that turn the humble pancake into an edible art form that you can make easily at home.
Food experts Polly Betton and Andrew Stellitano have built a series of 3D landscapes using the humble pancake as their basis, creating terrains ranging from desert islands and volcanoes to icebergs and forests, which were then photographed by food photographer Dominic Davies, who shot the images for chef Heston Blumenthal’s The Big Fat Duck Cookbook.
The ‘panscapes’ were all created using common household cupboard ingredients such as pancake mix, packets of meringues, cocktails sticks and Lyle’s Golden Syrup, which sponsored the project.
Below, watch Andrew make a forest ‘panscape’:
So get out your aprons and digital cameras and get to work! If you’ve made a panscape yourself, we’d love to see it!
