Restaurant Food Photography

Every chef is aware of the art of presentation – making food look great on a plate. The anticipation of taste! The photographers job in the studio, or as in this case on location, is to provide great light to bring that plate to life.

This can be achieved in many ways. The first requirement is light. Working in the UK, it is not always the best idea to rely on natural lighting. So I generally take my own and light the food as if it was daylight. As you can see from these images it works!

Composition is all important. I like to get rid of unnecessary clutter and use only what is required to add some ambience to the shot. Other ideas include selective focussing and getting in tight to see the detail.
