Creating images for trade use with Brakes Foods.

A quick call, we need lifestyle images of products for the fish and chip trade channels… within 348 hours if we could, for Brakes Group use.  As a studio we seem to have created a reputation of pulling things out of the hat in short timescales – whether it be product photography of one form or another or recipes and advertising images for food.  On this occasion we had just done simple product shots for Speyside Specialities a few weeks before and had frozen spare product in the studios freezers just in case of emergencies.  Luck would have it, they had one!

presented chip shop style.  Sounds easy?  Have you ever tried to recreate chip shop batter?  Now we’re not bad in the kitchen and we know the secret is two flours – corn and white and yes the answer is always good old English beer… but!

First we got the mixture right but it didn’t coat evenly – OK with the sausage but a disaster with black pudding and white pudding as it all melted out.  Then we go the mixture to coat but it ended up like concrete around the subject – not pretty.  After quite a few dry runs, we sorted it for each product (no not one batter to fit all, four batters!)  Then we got onto the easy bit, chip paper, news paper and the combinations of extras from ketchup to beans and yes, curry sauce – we refrained from the cheesy chip option as well much to the disgust of one or two in the studio that day.

It’s easy doing food photography… isn’t it!
