Restaurant Photography. Capturing the process of enjoying food.

The nice thing about doing menu photography – apart from the food – is to be able to see chef in action.  The ability to blend technical skill with creative ideas – often in an instant of thought and always under too much pressure as diners not longer have the patience to wait for a special meal.  The issue, therefore, when we shoot a restaurant and we’re asked to shoot both kitchen and plate, is to think two sets of rigs – the usual lights camera action sets for the menu in a more secluded part of the restaurant and then a mobile rig for the kitchens.  We mainly shoot Canon EOS 1d rigs so the 9 or more frames a second catches the action nicely and the latest ISO abilities of the ID models means we’re finding less us of flash is needed.

That means we can use a longer lens and keep out of the way – letting chef simply get on with their business of creating great food.  Our only issue of time and space so to speak comes from a request of ‘can you shoot this dish in the kitchen’.  Here lighting is the issue as the use of hot lamps in the counter area produces yellow light – so we shoot hand held (not the best way to shoot food), untethered and then adjust colours and lighting in the studio.
