Bon Apetit!

 

Cooking is an art. The many elements that go into creating a dish combine to become a delicious recipe. Al dente pasta cooked to perfection, bathed in a special sauce, and topped off with a sprinkling garnish of herbs is truly a work of art.

Photographing food is no less an art that preparing it. Here are some tips and tricks for successful food photography:

  1. Place Setting. Set your food up in a visually pleasing setting that accents the food well. As with this ravioli photograph, the red plate highlights the tender lobster on the inside.
  2. Decorate! Add garnishes and spices to enhance the dish.
  3. Use tricks. Wetting the food to add a shine and other techniques can make the food look more appealing.
  4. Accessorize. Adding in other elements to the photo, such as the fork in this image adds interest and persuasion.

So this weekend when you’re cooking up a fantastic meal, why not try photographing your food with some of these helpful tips.

Happy Shooting (and Eating)!

The Art of Art Copy

Art copy work is an important branch of photography. It is important to pay close attention to detail and be very meticulous. We photographed the paintings of the very talented Dr. Marc Malberg. His work is based on different biblical themes with incorporated surrealism.  We photographed his paintings to look as close to they do in reality. Take a look at these marvelous works of art for yourself.  

Marc I. Malberg, MD
Helen of Troy, 1985, 72×48

When photographing art:

  • Use lighting that will portray the image as it is supposed to be shown.
  • Using color management tools like the color checker passport is imperative to reproducing the colors the artist intended.
  • Perspective should be kept direct and un-skewed.
  • As always, make your subject (in this case the art) look it’s best.
