food photography is a pleasant change from the usual stuff i do. firstly, it’s set up, almost studio like, except i used vast quantities of natural light, which food should be photographed in essentially, and large sheets of white paper as a backdrop. simple. effective and so clean. placement is the challenge here. but you never feel conscious of the subject’s discomfort as you compose. tomatoes do not twinge with annoyance if you move them around several times. ginger couldnt give a shit. and o good lord does that f/1.8 make everything look divine. i think i’ll buy some cupcakes and stuff the next time and do a cliche-but-pretty dessert shoot.
