It sounds like the beginning of a joke, but it’s not. I began working with Central Synagogue last year to photograph events and important services. In June they came to me with the idea of making a photo for their 2015 High Holidays greeting card. The image was to be a composite of six clergy members working together to prepare an apple cake for the new year in the stye of Top Chef promo photos. After lots of planning, two days in the studio, and hours of compositing and retouching, this is the result.
