On Assignment for Australian Geographic
My prefered workflow is a calm, intent based, highly detail orientated process. Often times...
Over three months, three days a week and three tether cables later this series of 130 styled food shots was created with Chef and owner of Bliss Organic Cafe, Grace Love and the cook book Confident Cooking was born containing 100 recipes with accompanying themed images.
I found that a reflector can ultimately make a great prop and there are so many rules of photography most of which I am unaware of but the freedom that food photography grants is endless.
This experience taught me a lot about myself as well as the art form of photography especially in the field of controlling and shaping light. Very blessed to be able to spend such an extended period of time intimately with the project and with Grace which cements my belief in the slow and steady shooting style.
