Food & Beverage Photography

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 can make all the difference to a professional commercial photography food shoot.

Food Photography Information

Food Photography Requires Skill, The Right Lighting and a Good Food Stylist

There are many "Right" things needed for a Food Photography Shoot, which... if you want your food to be photographed properly you hire professionals to create all the elements that go into this highly skilled specialty.  

There are many factors that go into food photography other then the normal things like capture, lighting, image quality, 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.

When they say they use glue as milk, it's true. The 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, the egg yolks that are a beautiful golden yellow, a beverage the right color, the right ice cube, the right condensation around the glass, beer - the right amount of foam in a frosty mug. All this created just for the camera and it takes time and preparation.

 

Food for the camera is differnet than the food we eat...

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 can make all the difference to a professional commercial photography food shoot.

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 needed, between the client, the food stylist and the Photographer. Having a blueprint in advance means better Images on the day of the shoot.

Plating, propping, and the right ingredients make all the difference in the world to really nice images as opposed to throwing everything on the plate and taking a picture. It's the photographers job to bring out the surfaces and textures of the food through lighting and capture. 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. Please call us today so we can schedule a consultation to discuss your assignments needs.
