Food photography isn’t as easy as it looks. It takes skill to get sharp clear images that are realistic, whilst making the food look mouth wateringly delicious.
If you use food photography for your menus, online sales, your blog or recipe books, The Product Photographers in Guildford can create beautiful images for any food photography project.
The Art of Food Photography
The secret of good food photography is to make the food look appealing, realistic and to draw the viewer’s eye to your product immediately. With the right lighting, colour and depth an experienced food photographer can do just that.
Food Photography and Lighting
Natural lighting is best for food photography, so using a location that provides natural light is ideal, but if it’s not possible then artificial light can be used with the help of diffusors and reflectors. Whether you want to come into my Guildford studio, or have the photographs taken on location, I have all the necessary equipment to take great photo’s anywhere.
Food Photography and Colour
Colour is important in food photography and knowing which colours contrast well with each other helps to turn an ordinary photograph into a stunning image. If you want your food to be photographed showing a table setting or other any other objects, consideration needs to be given to how the other objects effect the colour and mood of the picture.
As professional photographers we can make the difference to your food photographs because we know about the importance of angles, depth, lighting and colour and how to get the best photograph possible from your food whether it’s hot, cold, a piece of lone lettuce or a dish full of flavoursome ingredients, I can make it look tempting and delicious.
Food Photography and Style
The fresher the food the better it looks on a photograph, but there are ways of making food look good for photography even if you can’t supply it freshly cooked, chopped or peeled. Iced water, a little oil and attractive, clean plates are all that are needed. Photographs that include steam or movement such as pouring cream or gravy can also have a great impact on the image of the food.
We have a great deal of food photography experience, so just ask us if you have a feeling for a photograph. We can tell you whether or not it will work and maybe suggest other ideas that will bring your photograph to life for you.
