Food photography is a still life specialisation that aims to produce attractive photographs of food for advertising, packaging, restaurant menus or recipe books.
The process starts with the purchase of the ingredients and props, preparing the food, styling it, lighting the setting, and then finally the photography. Only perfect and visually appealing ingredients are used to portray quality and freshness. The food is artfully styled to translate the perception of taste, aroma and appeal that one derives from an actual dish, into a two-dimensional photograph. The props and lighting are carefully considered to enhance and complement the food,without distracting from it. My passion for food photography includes sourcing props, styling the food, lighting the setting and then taking the photographs. All photographs are edited to enhance the natural colours and remove any imperfections, and are supplied to the Client on disc.
