To share with you my favourite pics from my this decor8 column this month, White Chocolate + Passionfruit Cheesecake, I thought it would be fun to make a little food photography behind the lens video so you can witness my humble food photography shooting process with you.
One of the greatest things I love about food photography is how a little goes a long, long way. Just a simple background (get the technique here!), three plates, a cheesecake, a bowl of syrup and Bob’s your uncle, (well he is actually my neighbour, but you get my drift).
I know everyone loves behind the scenes content and for me that is opening up something I didn’t know I didn’t even know! That ‘aha’ moment you can’t believe you did without. It’s easy to get bogged down in believing you need lots of fancy gear, a studio, exclusive vintage props and a nice kitchen in order to really make something worthwhile. The proof is in the pudding, you don’t need much to make images like this! With just a background, two side plates and a cheesecake, beautiful is be at your fingertips!
