Alan started the workshop with setting up a bowl of soup. Simple right? Not even close! It took about an hour to get the right shot of soup. Food photography is not for the impatient photographer or anyone who doesn't pay strict attention to detail. So if you are detail oriented this is perfect for you!
We spent time learning how to set up different backgrounds and also how to get just the right angle on the food item before we lit it up using off camera lighting, reflectors and even mirrors. It was fascinating! (that's not my camera below, by the way)
Finally, we got to enjoy the food we had been shooting with an impeccably prepared meal by a personal chef. It was delectable!
I'm getting hungry again. Now it is off to shoot food- and EAT!!
A hui hou,
