A small army of Gingerbread men by Hanna’s Artisan Baking.
Food photography is not an area I ever considered exploring, however, when my lovely wife set up an artisan baking business it made sense for me to develop some food photography skills to help her promote the business.
I am still pretty much a food photography beginner, Ideally I would like to get a macro lens to get even better results, but for now I can tell you most of these photos were taken with a Canon 5D and a 50mm f/1.4 lens. I usually try and take the photos in natural light – close to a window when possible – with whoever is close at hand getting the job of holding some kind of reflector to fill in the shadows. It also helps to take the photos as soon as the food is ready.
Most of the credit, however, must go to Hanna’s wonderful creations, that look amazing and taste wonderful.
