Today we’re going to set aside the real estate sector and talk about another type of photography, which just like architectural photography is full of its own quirks: food photography.
In this genre, the first thing that should be emphasised is the importance of this task being carried out by a professional photographer, as when we refer to food photography we’re not talking about a photo taken with your mobile phone. Major restaurants exclusively contract professional photographers to display their dishes in maximum detail, creating an image that invites customers to visit the restaurant and sample the dish that their eyes have been tempted by.
Food photography aims to highlight details that make food appealing: texture and the reproduction of colours.
By paying attention to both and ensuring that they are not distorted by the lighting, attention can be focussed on the different angles. The most widely used is zenithal light, but why not explore other focuses? In the end, dishes hold interesting surprises that can be highlighted by the camera. Therefore, once the more general angles typical of this type of photography have been covered, don’t hesitate to move the camera and fearlessly zoom in to the food to seek out details, textures and colours that cannot be appreciated in wider shots.
In conclusion, I recommend that you take a tour of Marbella’s magnificent restaurants, where you can find a wide range of culinary options for all tastes.
