I thoroughly enjoy food photography.
It gives me the chance to play around with mood and drama… lighting and styling… creative thoughts and technical know-how.
I seldom use natural light only.
Manipulating studio light to create mood and feel is what I prefer.
I make use of a variety of lights, reflectors and flags to create my images.
All the styling in these images was done by me.
The props and styling aids also belong to the studio.
In the above image I used a large softbox on the right hand side to mimic window light.
I also used a white reflector on the left hand side to lift out the dark shadows.
In the above image I used small spot lights to lift out certain spots like the tomatoes and parmesan.
By using hands in some of my images I create a personal feel.
