Creative food photography lab by Dina Belenko

Hi! My name is Dina Belenko and my job is to tell magical stories about mundane objects.
I’m a person with little sugar cube castles, cardboard dragons, spilled coffee, lemon balloons and a solar system made from donuts and cookies. My still life items are just like a troupe of inanimate actors who could neither move nor speak, but still could create a narrative.

I can show you how to create these stories, how to make tea cups fly, write sweet words with strawberry jam, make a dragon from a candle flame or spilled ink.

Things can tell a lot about their owners. Things you like can tell a lot about you. I can prove it by creating your portrait using only still life items. It would reprecent your soul and character rather than your looks, but it is what portraits are really about.
