Photographing Food in an Environment

 

When photographing food in an environmental setting, attention to detail is key. Notice the creamy cup of butter next to the pastry?
Or the carefully placed newspaper by the coffee? The soft background baked goods add more of an atmosphere to the scene. The lighting hints at a morning glow around the food.
These details can help the viewer envision themselves in the setting and enjoying the wonderful food!

There is no better way to start off your week than with a perfectly brewed cup of coffee and a delicious pastry.
These scrumptious morsels were photographed for Samba restaurant in Montclair, NJ.
Why not head on over to make your Monday a little sweeter?

Happy Shooting Feasting. 🙂

’tis the season

Homegrown New Jersey fruits and vegetables are one of the best parts about summer. Corn on the cob (a personal favorite) is one of the tastiest ways to get in the mood for summer. Is there anything better than a sweet ear of corn on the grill, coated in butter and salt? Other than of course Jersey tomatoes. And fresh blueberries and juicy peaches. What are your favorite summer foods??

Bringing summer into full swing, Independence Day is right around the corner. Nothing says Happy 4th of July like family barbecues with your favorite summer foods. Enjoy the day off work and spend some quality time enjoying some fresh summer produce with the ones you love. While you’re at it, exercise your freedom to photograph!! It’s the perfect time to practice some outdoor portraiture, event photography, and yes, even food photography!

As always, happy shooting!

Depth of field

Choosing the depth of field of a photograph is a crucial part of creating an effective photograph. Selective focus on a certain part of the image directs the viewer’s eye to what you want them to focus on. As you can see in this example, the viewer’s attention is directed to the center of the artichoke, putting the emphasis on the texture of the vegetable.

Try this at home! Work on taking photographs of an object using varying points of focus and amounts of depth of field. See how this affects the image.

Happy shooting. 🙂
