Last week I shared some food photography images from last year’s restaurant week assignments. I decided not to wait a whole year to share this time around. The promo features have started to appear in the thursday gleaner’s food section for Restaurant week so stay tuned this and every thursday leading up to the Kingston Restaurant Week Publication in november :). Two food photographs that I did got published today see screen shots below.
I went about these images in the same manner I typically go about my food photography assignments. Basic two light setup in a cross lighting pattern, I’ve added an occasional fill from a reflector in some cases but non of those images are ready for sharing yet. I’m not pleased with some of the shadows being created by the kicker light so I’m toying with the idea of diffusing the kicker and seeing if it’ll still reveal enough detail / texture but softer shadows due to the relative size of the light source.
The flash power on the key light was OVER 9000!!!!!. I Mean I really don’t remember I rarely remember flash power settings from my images especially not on food assignments that i do more than 4 or 5 restaurants a day. Enjoy the images, Feel free to ask any questions in the comments below and remember the Food Photography will not be televised!!! so you gotta buy the thursday Gleaner to keep tabs on what the restaurants are offering for Kingston Restaurant week. which will help you figure out where you wanna go come november 8, 2013.
