Today, I’m sharing a super easy and savory Irish Cheddar Soda Bread. No kneading, no yeast, no rise time—a perfect beginner’s bread. This is another recipe from one of the projects I’m working on .
Of course since it’s more commercially geared, what I shot for the client is much brighter and cleaner. But like the sweet Irish Soda Bread I made and shot—I had to sneak in a few of my own dark shots.
I have to admit moving from doing personal work for the blog to shooting for clients is so gratifying and can sometimes be so nerve racking at the same time. There’s a big difference from someone buying something previously shot to shooting to specifications with style guidelines—especially, guidelines outside where I naturally resonate towards.
But I can’t complain, I’m loving it. It’s exactly what work should do—stretch you creatively and technically. And lucky for me, this project has even helped me find a new appreciation for homemade bread making.
