Chapters on equipment, studio set-up, and key players give the insider perspective only Teri can deliver. Stories about specific assignments show set-up details, lighting diagrams, styling, and specific challenges of the shoot. The proliferation of food blogs and how-to books have led us to believe that anyone who has access to a kitchen and a window can shoot food--and of course, you can--but it's not the same as creating those images within the confines of an advertising layout and the pressure of having your clients watch you do it.
This book provides an in depth look at the world of commercial food photography. Veteran photographer Teri Campbell provides an insider's perspective on what it takes to light and capture a wide range of food and beverages.
With candid descriptions of the events that lead to the creation of each photograph and detailed diagrams of lighting and camera set-ups as well as background and prop selection, this beautifully illustrated guide includes six core chapters on the equipment, studio set up, and players in business.
