p.2 #1 · p.2 #1 · Best FL to shoot food


UPDATE: Here's a few shots from the weekend... I still have alot to learn and will probably give it another try in a few weeks when I visit texas again. I shot most of these with a 50mm macro, window lighting, one reflector, and one flash. Sorry about the sizing since they're being imported from my fb.

Convert https to http or use the [img] tags. I posted them, but then removed them because
they are ridiculously wide.

Please resize to 800 px wide (maybe 1024 wide if you must) and repost.

Good to know what your subject and approach is like. So, it's macro, is it? That's pretty close up, and with extreme shallow DOF. It looks pretty good for lens choice (the 90 TS-E and 100L would also work well), but contrast and lighting seem in need of some work -- very soft and high key without any texture.

Yes. I have no experience with lighting setups and have a lot to learn. That's my next project.

I've been asked to help take some photos of food for a japanese restaurant to recreate their menu. I haven't spent much time taking photos of food. Does anyone have recommendations as to what's the best way to approach this?


Yes. Chopsticks. ;-)

If it's for a menu, you might wanna think about what you would like to see if it's your first time dining in that restaurant and you're not familiar with the food. Or what the restaurant would like to show their customers.

I personally would like to see more of what's on the plate and the food presentation, ie. less fancy low angle and more in focus. Make the food look very appetising, but not too much BS like those MacDonald's advertisement burgers that look nothing like the ones they serve to the customers.

Props like chopsticks, soya sauce bottle or whatever else you see on the restaurant table would also make your shots less sterile.

If it's for the restaurant's website gallery, or if the style is more fine dining, then you can get as fancy as you'd like.

On a side note, I feel like some nigiri zushi now... uni, awabi, kaki, hotate, otoro, tako, ebi... Now where's that drool smiley...
