Food glorious food!

Food photography, technically challenging, great fun and not a good idea if you are feeling hungry, especially at The Old Bath Arms in Frome!

Richards passion for food and mine for photography, well say no more!

So whats the key to getting a food picture right? Its all about the light. Get that right and you have delicious looking food. There are 101 ways to light food and I favour a mix of daylight and reflectors and flash but Studio strobes on their own with soft boxes and reflectors produces a clean light thats under your control! With practice the overall quality of the image can be fantastic.

Have a go! Place the food by a north facing window and use a white card to give a little fill in light. This can produce some amazing images. Bon appetite!
