Last Saturday Carriage House Inn & Catering, who do practically all the catering for the Stone Manor Country Club, had a tasting at their restaurant. They wanted some new photos for a new website they’re about to launch, so it was a perfect opportunity for me to go up there and get some photos of some delicious food!
I started out with the place settings they have set up. So pretty.
And then came the food! I didn’t have much time to photograph the food, since they were taking these to their clients to taste as soon as I was done. What I had to do was choose exactly where I wanted to photograph the food, decide how I wanted the light to hit the food, [I was using all natural light from a window] and get all my camera settings exactly where I wanted them before they brought the plates to me. This way, I could tell them exactly where to put the food, take 2-3 photos, and have them take it away. I don’t think I had any one plant of food for more than 10-20 seconds.
Are you hungry yet? :)
