Some of the most fun we’ve had in the studio of late was a recent shoot we did for The Popcorn Board. We photographed (and sampled!) a variety of pop-a-licious recipes for their website redesign. We shot popcorn snack mixes, popcorn balls, popcorn pie, popcorn bars, and more. It seemed like the popping never stopped! Our hands-down favorite recipe was the Popcorn Con Pesto. Warning: it’s highly addictive!

5 quarts popped popcorn
