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!

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.
