Food Photography, Simple and Complicated

Spread the love

Food Photography can be both simple and complicated. In this blog post we are going to look at both the simple and the complicated for Food Photography.

Light Painting

The above image is an example of Light Painting. This is a very complicated approach to Food Photography. The way it works is your set up the scene in a totally dark room. Then you open the camera, but because there is not light, nothing is happening. Next, you take a small pen light and you wave it around the image like you would use a paint brush on a painting, As a result, you end up with an image that is surreal, looking more like a painting instead of a photograph. The process is super slow and thus expensive. But the results, as you can see are simple amazing!

You can watch a 2 minute video of me making the above image here: https://youtu.be/0twxSOzgA6s

Continuous Lighting

The above image is an example of a Continuous Lighting. In other words, the lights are always ON. The technique is simple and fast to set up and break down. For that reason, it is often done at the location where the food is located. For that reason it is much more cost effective.

Trittnie Sampey | KVP Extreme 2019 Senior Model | Houma LA

I saved the best for last today!!! This is Ms. Trittnie Sampey and she is just amazing. Yes…I said it….AMAZING….I’m going to post each image we did of her FREE Kirk Voclain Photography Extreme 2019 Senior Model Shoot and explain to everyone why she did such an AMAZING JOB as one of our Models!!!

This whole session only took just a few moments but the images are just so good. Noting this first image we did of her by our special tin wall, inside our studio.

Trittnie | KVP Extreme 2019 Senior Model | Houma LA

Notice how the lighting on her face just raps around and makes her skin glow. This is one of the coolest things about knowing how to light a High School Senior for your senior pictures. On top of that, notice how Ms. Trittnie leaned her body and made this image just so much fun to look at. This is what you get when you combine a awesome model and a great photographer. You end up with crazy awesome Senior Portraits!!!!

Next, we did this new radical effect. Now, it takes years and years of experience to pull off and image like this. The background really is not there!!!! Check it out:

Trittnie | KVP Extreme 2019 Senior Model | Houma LA

This background is just not really there!!! It’s just a plane white background. But with radical vision and mad crazy photoshop skills, you end up with an image that is beyond spectacular!!!! Put on top of that an AWESOME MODEL who knows how to pose and how to smile and hold….CRAZY COOL IMAGE…….Thank you so much Trittnie for being so awesome!

Now check out this awesome image of Trittnie….it’s all her….just great model and great posing!!!

Trittnie | KVP Extreme 2019 Senior Model | Houma LA

As a photographer, when you have an awesome model who knows how to pose and knows what to do, you can focus on the lighting and angles and such. A small little tilt of the camera is what makes this crazy awesome image just so much fun to look at. But, beginning photographers are just too scared to do fun images like this. They are just straight…and boring. Don’t setting for boring….get the best senior picture ever with Kirk Voclain Photograph.

The last image we did of Ms Trittnie, is just so sweet and pleasant. But there are some subtle little things in the lighting that I want you to look at:

Trittnie | KVP Extreme 2019 Senior Model | Houma LA

Awesome pose….just the kind of thing you want to hang on your wall! But what I want you to take note of is the neat way the light falls on her face. Notice how her face show both highlight and shadows. What I mean is bright areas and dark areas. This is why this image is just so sweet and nice. A flat image on your computer screen will look all even and, well….FLAT. That is what photographers who do not have any experience will give you…..FLASHY FLAT images that are just boring to look at. Don’t setting for second best. YOU ARE THE BEST…so demand the best for your High School Senior Pictures.

Tricks Of The Trade | PS Actions | Sleeklens

Spread the love

Tricks of the Trade is something I’m often asked by professional photographers, they will say, “…how in the world do you get your images to look so perfect?” Well in today blog Post, I’m going to show you some wicked cool tricks of the trade.

Tricks Of The Trade – Photoshop Actions

For those that do not know about Actions, an Action is something that works kinda like a DVR works with TV. On a DVR you can set it to record a program and then go back and watch it later. In Photoshop, there is a thing called “Actions” that allow you to record steps inside of the program. Then when you need to do those steps again, you just hit play.

Sleeklens

This is a company that makes some nice clean usable PS Actions. Sleeklens makes PS Actions.  They also offer Editing Services. And they also offer Light Room Presets. They even has a video that shows you how it works. Check out the video:

I personally have their Actions and here is a quick before and after to show you want you can do with their product:

Before and After Photoshop Actions

Being a professional photographer is oh so much more than just taking pretty pictures. You have to know what makes a portrait awesome and what it takes to make a client happy.

Professional Photography Education

I have said it before and I will say it again. Just knowing a trick is not all there is to being a professional photographer. The Tricks of the Trade are certainly important, but then knowing how to use them, where to use them, why you use them is beyond important. It is EVERYTHING.

If you are a professional photographer and you are reading this, or if you are an aspiring pro photographer, let me give you one more of my secrets, EDUCATION!!!! Almost everything that I know has come from The Pro4uM.com web site. I have been learning on this site now for almost 25 years. The site has over 2,000,000 posts from photographers from all over the world. If it has been talked about it has been talked about on the Pro4uM. So, if you want to get better, learn more and become all that you can be in the great industry of Professional Photography, let me encourage you to Join The Pro4uM.com
