i’m making the trek into the city tonight to do some product photography for a friend of mine. it appears that she’s the pastry chef at this bakery in the sunset district and they are going to have a chocolate truffle tasting tonight. i’m going to go and check out some of the confections that they have and also get an idea of what kind of pictures they want for their shop.
i’m not really too keen on taking pictures of food. it’s still a bit of a mystery to me how to make food look tasty. there’s something that seems to always be lost in translation when it comes to food photography. i don’t quite know what the secret is, but i’m sure that it’ll be a lot of work to get it to the pro level.
i’m just going to try and wing it and do a few test shoot to see how it works out though…and besides, a free truffle tasting can’t be SO bad.
