Food Lighting II

setup1

 

Before I set up the shot I have a story in mind. A story which at the end of the shoot I have to see it in my photos. Sometimes inspirations comes during the shoot, but most of the time, I have already the story in my head.

I wanted a 45 degree camera angle on the subject placed on black background, which was a old black tray. In the back and the right of the subject I have a 20 cm black background. Β Camera is on a tripod and set to F/6.3, 1/4 sec and ISO-100. The light here comes from my left side and back from 2 walls made of windows. A cloudy day, made it perfect for what I had in mind.

Most of the time I use natural light. I have to work fast, but food has a great texture.

So, is easy and simple. Just need to look for the light or adjust the one that you have. Have fun!
