This was our first dive into food styling and photography, which was a fantastic learning experience. One of the challenges we faced was the limited amount of time we had to work with the food before ingredients altered in appearance due to temperature or moisture. The cooler natural light outside was ideal starting point for most of the main food shots. In contrast, the warm restaurants cast a strong tone over everything, so we limited and chose carefully which photos were taken indoors.
I enjoyed figuring out which angles suited each dish when shooting, and doing touch ups on the plating. The goal with the editing was to try and keep the photos consistent, and bring a balanced contrast level, as well as bright, fresh colours.
