I’m the food photographer that doesn’t cook! However, that doesn’t mean I can’t photograph food. I already have photographed two cookbooks and I have photographed for several restaurants and food bloggers. These photos are from my latest food photography assignment. Donna, of the Apron Strings Blog, hired me to photograph three different recipes. These are natural light photographs and I am including 2 versions of two of the items. I really love the “aerial” view of two of the items. And I am including the more traditional view as well.
Donna is doing one of those Whole 30 diets where you stick to whole foods. The ingredients for the diet are limited to whole foods—avoiding processed foods, grains, sugars, and such.
I had this greenish board which created great color contrast with the sweet potato in this Eggs in Root Vegetable Nests. I nicknamed it the healthy “Toad in the Hole.” We included some of the ingredients to layer in a composition surrounding the Egg in Nest.
This is the Raw Beet Salad. Donna put 3 slices of Raw Beet. The three beets create a triangle which helps the eye enjoy the composition of the salad. The red contrasts nicely with the rest of the salad.
And finally the Greek Chicken Meatballs. Nummers. I really like the aerial view of this meal. It gave me the chance to be creative in the positioning of some ingredients. The window light and mirrors I used really lighten up the scene and creates a high key and brighter photograph.
