A small battery powered video camera light can be really useful when shooting food if you cant use available light. Move the light to the side or behind the dish to bring out the texture of the food. its a bit bright to use in a posh restaurant though.
A blog by David Griffen Photography.
David Griffen loves food almost as much as he loves photography.
This blog is an excursion into shooting food with a camera phone, trying to get the tastiest results using the same techniques David practices when shooting Michelin starred chefs. This blog is by no means a definitive guide to food photography, but David hopes it will give you some new ideas and lift the level of food photography in food blogs.
