Plated food

Postby Steven G Webb » Fri Aug 11, 2017 3:13 pm

This is a brave step into commercial food photography. I want to branch my business and offer "real food" photography for restaurants photographing their food in lieu of the camera phone shots being posted now.

You are probably looking for feedback on lighting, composition and such. I have zero experience there, so can I offer a consumer's response? A thoroughly unappetizing looking meal with all the same blah colors. Tell them they need broccoli and radishes as color and texture contrasts :D (The red napkin is super, as is the crusty looking dinner roll)

You've posted this in the showcase so I'm assuming you don't want critique. Please let us know if you want feedback and suggestions and we'll be happy to share. Some of us will of course be better equipped in this genre than others. We don't want to offer what you don't want to hear, but we would like to be helpful if specific feedback is something you're interested in. We want to give you what you want/need!

I admire your courage in stepping off into a new endeavor.
