Food Month is a few weeks off and the preparation has already began. I’ve been tasked with shooting the entire feature, I guess going above and beyond in the previous Kingston Restaurant Week and Food Month feature’s didn’t go unrecognized. Typically I’d take a one light, maximum two light setup and be able to successfully light the plated meals for the featured restaurants. I’m not certain if I’ll change that aspect of things this year as its tried, and proven.
Here are some of my some of my favourite images from Restaurant week Features of the Past.
Mhmmmmm Lobster. I feel true sorrow for they that suffer from sea food Allergies. Food month is not the time for any kind of food alergies.
A one light setup was employed here, used the Lumiquest SBIII and the SB-28dx pushed the light in really tight for a relatively wide and even spread and little to no fall off. The same was done for the wrap with minor changes in the angle of the light.
I loved the specular highlights produced from the kicker light , helps with shaping the meal.
This was one of my favourite plated meals that i photographed. the presentation though simple was interesting. I liked how they made sushi even more interesting than it already is. It was shaped differently than the conventional sushi rolls, I loved the leave shaped wasabi and I loved the name of the meal; Dragon Ball – Z (Very fitting dont you think)
Okay thats it for now, Stop drooling all over the computer screen and keyboard. Stay tuned for the upcoming promo features for Food month in the Jamaica Gleaner thursday food publication. Definitely look out for the Restaurant Week Feature and get out and get intouch with your inner foodie come november.
