a guest post by Carol Hart.
It is such an honor to be here with you all to share what I know about food photography. Thank you so much Kim for this opportunity and for having faith in me. I always enjoyed Barb Brookbank’s food posts so I have some pretty big shoes to fill!
My goal with these posts is to hopefully inspire by sharing information and any tips and tricks I’ve learned along the way, as well as share with you those amazing food photographers and stylists out there who have inspired me. So let’s dive right in, shall we?
Last year I had the wonderful opportunity to attend a one day workshop with Aran Goyoaga, who is an amazing photographer, stylist, and recipe developer. She has a lovely blog and has even written a cookbook. I learned so much just watching her work
In the two images above Aran is composing a scene containing heirloom tomatoes.
In the picture above she putting the finishing touches on a Watermelon Gazpacho.
Being able to watch her work and hear her talk about what she is trying to achieve in her work was such a gift and I think it helped me a great deal in my own work. So, I thought a little video here would be in order. In the video I take you on a little journey where we shopped for citrus to use in the photo shoot, outline what we’re going to cover, then in the studio actually composing the scene and taking the pictures.
I hope you found the video helpful. Here are the images you saw in the video, along with my camera settings noted
Many, many thanks again to Kim and each and every one of you for stopping by the blog for a look see today.
Thank you Carol. It’s wonderful to have you here.
