Food Photography

While it's still a few weeks away, I'm preparing for my final photography class project. I have to create a portfolio that reflects what would become my discipline ... and when I grow up, I want to be a food photographer. While I don't yet have the skills of this guy, or this gal, you can understand why they are both my inspiration, and sought-after by the big food publications.

I went to one of my favorite places (the North Market) yesterday to gather my subjects. I love that you can eat them after you've shot them. As I prepare, I'd love your input on the images that best display food. What makes you hungry? What image would you use in a cook book or magazine article? What's missing?

Your input throughout this class has been extremely helpful in my progress. Feel free to offer me your input here or on my photostream here. And thank you!

No...I'm not calling you Pam but mentioning the cooking product.

A light cooking of Pam will make any fruit or vegetable photograph more beautifully. It will deepen color considerably.

It's the same effect of varnishing a rock to bring out colors. Spray lightly then smooth the Pam out with an old rag.
