Photographing food seems to be something I’m instinctively good at now. I’ve learnt how to assess the light and determine weather I wanna use natural light or throw artificial light at it as key light and balance with ambient or just completely ignore the ambient and be the god of the set “let there be light where i want it how i want it when want it”.
This food feature was on a restaurant that I personally loooove. Di Grill Shack Originally located in sovereign
centre food court. However this feature was on their new location at CPJ market along lady musgrave road. The new location lends it self to a dining experience something that wasn’t available at their initial offering at sovereign
The menu has grown as well to reflect the new ambiance more “mature dishes” that would take more time to eat more time to savour and enjoy so to speak. Pasta’s, Steak, Pork chops to name a few of the new items.
Lets feast our eyes shall we :).
First we have the Pork Chops. One large light source Camera left ambient light pretty much ignored at 1/250th, f/4, iso 200 at 50mm focal length on the nikon 24-120 mounted on a d800
Steak!!! Who doesn’t love steak with a side of mashed potatoes 😀 makes me hungry just looking at the image. For this one the lighting setup is pretty much the same but the exposure was changed drastically. the exposure was 1/5oth at f/4.5, ISO 200. I wanted to bleed in as much light as I could without over exposure issues.
Pull Pork Burger and Fries!!
The last two images pretty much followed the same exposure settings as the second low shutter speed to bleed in ambient light.
The images were Features on todays food sections front page above the fold. I think it was very well ladyed out.. it definitely makes one hungry!
Until next time.
