Time well spent
Caroline already had a great set of lenses and a fantastic D3 to mount them on, but she wasn’t using her gear to its full potential. It’s the sort of situation where new kit will never be the answer, but practice and help from a pro will be invaluable. By placing less emphasis on gear and paying more attention to lighting, the quality of the food and the styling, she was able to produce some fantastic food photos. “Taking a step back and thinking before she presses the shutter release will pay dividends,” says Olly.
