We do a lot of food photography involving complete recipes where our food stylists are preparing dishes or meals to spec for restaurants, or they are following a recipe to be published in a magazine. I guess that’s kind of the typical food photography someone would expect from a food photographer.
Sometimes we get to stray from the usual, and in this case we highlighted certain ingredients found in our client’s recipes. I say “get to” because often with the task comes the opportunity to break out of the usual approach for photographing food and we can play some. We like to play.
This is a series of images we did for a national client where we (food stylist, prop stylist, art director and I) put together these small vignettes to highlight some of the fresh ingredients found in some of their holiday menu offerings.
