Many factors that go into food photography other then the normal things like cameras, lighting, backgrounds, etc. The best way to accomplish good photography is to hire a good food stylist that knows how to prepare food for the camera.
Looking at food with the eye and looking at food through a camera lens are two different things. Preparing food for the lens is an absolute art in itself and will make all the difference for a professional food shoot.
Plating, propping, and the right ingredients and colors, make all the difference to good images as opposed to great Images. Throwing everything on the plate and taking a picture is not good food Photography. It's the photographers job to bring out the surfaces and textures of the food through lighting and surfaces. The photographer has a great respect for what goes into a Food Shoot, both pre and post production.
Refrigeration and a good food prep kitchen are a must for a specialized shoot like food. We provide refrigeration and a full kitchen to prepare your dishes. We can set up a studio on-location at your kitchen if need be. Food needs to look it's best for advertising and we accomplish that by having all the elements in place before photography begins. A good game plan is necessary, between the client, food stylist and the Photographer. Having a blueprint in advance means better Images on the day of the shoot. It's worth the investment.
When "they say," they use glue as milk, it's true. The grill lines on a steak, the sesame seeds on a hamburger bun, the smooth surface in a pot of gumbo, the scoops of ice cream that don't melt, a beverage the right color, the right ice cube, the right condensation around the glass, for beer - the right amount of foam in a frosty mug.
You get the idea... All of this is created properly by a skilled food stylist specifically for the camera which it takes time and preparation.
