Food Photography | Eugene Oregon
Great food photography is an art. And its a little bit like a performance. It always helps to have the chef involved with selections and of course stand-ins or styling. And todays culinary schools put out graduates with a great new sense of an esthetic of how menu items work together on a plate. Where the art director, chef and photographer come together is when you decide how the plate and settings are to be viewed. A low angle allows background composition area for the environment of the restaurant while a higher angle of view emphasizes table textures and settings. Props are always helpful and good, dramatic, ‘chunky’ lighting will visually describe entree textures and flavors.
