Thanks again guy’s, glad you thought that the quality of the images matched the quality of the product :0)
What a busy week last we had last week. Attended an 80th birthday party for Ellsey’s a local vinegar manufacturer, this led to a product product shoot and a montage image for Lancashire Food blog site.
A product shot featuring some of the best produce from Lancashire
Montage image of shots taken at the event.
We also needed a food “porn” shot for a Pepper Cake blog.
- Cake on a glass platter
- Various objects from the bits n pieces box to give a bit of background interest
Just received an email from Red Bubble to inform me that I have made another sale of one of my images.
A nice ray of sunshine on a wet Lancashire day :0)
As I mentioned on a previous blog, I’m a fan of natural light photography, and I use my conservatory as a temporary “studio”.
I use a temporary stage propped on a table and window ledge, plenty of room to use coloured backgrounds, camera on a tripod linked through to a lap top to view a large image of the photograph. By shooting in the conservatory you can get a good level of light even under a cloudy sky.
I like to take photographs in natural light, so I have devised a temporary “studio” in my conservatory. As I live in Northern England it’s not often we get clear cloudless skies, so the even defused lighting is ideal for food photography. I prefer to use the camera on a tripod, use a cable release and tether the camera to a laptop to give a large view of the shot as soon as it is taken. Any adjustment needed to the scene can be done and the image retaken.
Below is a series of 9 images that was selected for the blog.
Once the blog had been published, we received an email from The Delicious Marketing Group thanking us for the review and if it would be possible to use a couple of the images on their Facebook page. They particularly liked this image.
Following my wife’s interest in food and the popularity of her food blog I’ve decided to take a look at Food Photography. I like to read around a subject before I jump in, so after a bit of digging around on the internet I came across this book
Food Photography – From snapshot to Great Shotsby Nicole S Young
A quick look through and it seems to cover the topic in great detail. Time will tell ….
I’ve decided to add this Blog page as part of a revamp to my web page Synergy Monochrome.
Prior to starting my web page I ran a blog page on Blogger. I started this in 2006 and it still exists and can be found here http://synergy001.blogspot.co.uk/ It contains a lot of my older work and may be worth a look.
