Using Natural Light for Food Photography

Garlic Soup

Such a busy week hadn’t much time to post to the blog at all. A few weeks ago, I had the joy of photographing food! Not everyday you get to do such a photo shot.

How to make the standard Austrian fare look bright and appetising. How ? is the question. Natural light is key for good food photography and presentation. The gig I had was tricky and demanding to complete. All items of the menu had to be photographed quickly within 3-10 mins. The kitchen was super busy producing and cooking each and every line item on the menu!
