2022 32 Night Photography 1069 marco ciavolino post

Falling Food is Hard to Shoot

So, I wanted to try a practical food effect (not using skewers) and well, it is a lot harder to do than I expected. See the article for behind the scenes. I used continuous lights, high ISO, shot at 8000/sec and still couldn't stop the pasta. Should be done with a flash but no more time due to the holidays. Also, I used the largest pasta I could find. What I didn't count on was it doesn't flow and instead fell out in blobs. Kudos to my wife for braving the pouring and super-hot pasta. Then we had lunch.

Lookit all those yummy emojis. All we need to do this week, for Food Photography is take a super shot highlighting those lip-smacking, delicious, scrumptious, mouth-watering, appetizing, succulent, luscious.... what were we talking about again ... ? Ah yes, Food, Glorious Food. All those colors, those textures, this really is a time for your picture to tell a story of a thousand words. Think of the times when you were younger and you enjoyed an ice-cream on a hot summer day or when you grilled a barbecue for your friends - the warmth and camaraderie it evoked. That feeling when your kids make a food mess beccause they loved your lasagna. Food and emotion are intertwined, it's up to you to show the viewer and make them feel what you do. There are many elements to a food photography photo that one should be aware of. The food that you are shooting, the props, the color, the background and the composition should all be carefully considered and placed together in an artful and delicious looking visual. The elements in your photo must blend together just like the layers, textures and tastes of a gourmet meal! Everything in your photo is a decision. Remember that we 'eat with our eyes', so make sure that your food is not too pale or without textures before you even start composing your photo.
