Recently I have been all fired up and inspired to play around with food photography. I think no matter what you’re interests or specialties, it’s always good to stretch your boundaries and learn new skills.
So I was lucky enough to spend a few hours playing in the studio with Helene Dujardin. She is a well-known food photographer and writes a fantastic blog called Tartelette. She also wrote a book Plate to Pixel: Digital Food Photography & Styling. While she was here she gave me a few quick tips and we were off and running. It was fantastic to spend time in the studio shooting with another photographer! That doesn’t happen often enough.
Just a couple of hours with Helene and I was HOOKED! And I’ve been dreaming up new things to photograph ever since. In fact, I’ve already been back in the studio playing with my food… again.
So far one of my favorite things about photographing food is that I always have a willing model. When I feel inspired, I can get to work!
Take a look below at some of the fun I’ve been having! What do you think? Does it make you want to play with your food too?
