A few weekends ago I had another food photography shoot with the 2 incredibly talented photographers, Chisa from chigarden and Sabrina from Sabatomic. The subject we shot was a variety of tarts which we prepped, styled and photographed on location at Chisa’s lovely light filled home. The tart shells were premade a day before so shooting time was much shorter than our last group shoot. Fillings included a lemon curd made by Sabrina, a light cream cheese filling made by myself and a dark and white chocolate ganache made by Chisa. We had a creme anglaise (pouring custard) but unfortunately that one didn’t work out but we still managed to get a variety of shots on the day. For decoration we used a series of mixed berries such as strawberries, raspberries and blueberries with some mint for garnish which went well with all the tarts. Overall a successful and fun photo shoot not to mention delicious! Here’s some of the shots from the day and hope you enjoy them.
A few weekends ago I had a food photography shoot with fellow bloggers Sab from Sabatomic and Chisa from Chigarden. I had never done food styling before and had wanted to do a shoot together with these 2 for a while. We finally managed to get a free weekend where we all weren’t busy and spent the day making cupcakes from scratch and styling them for the shoot.
Sabrina has been taking photos of food and has been styling her shoots for a lot longer than I have so seeing how she works was a real eye opener. With many props provided from both Chisa and Sab we managed to get a variety shoots utilising most of the natural light and creative critique from everyone to get the best shots we could on the day.
Besides taking photos I shot behind the scenes and made a BTS video so you can see what work is required when shooting food photography.
Thanks goes to Sab from her great tips and advice on food photography as well as Chisa for letting us use her house as our personal studio and cudos to both for their advice and creative critique on the day :).
