PRO PORTFOLIO TASTY SHOTS
Olly has worked with many high-end clients to get some amazing shots of top-quality food. Here are three of his most mouth-watering images
Hot mesquite-smoked salmon
This image was taken using natural window light, with the window behind the dish backlighting the smoke beautifully. The sheer theatricality of the presentation builds anticipation, giving way to an immediate sense of visual and olfactory pleasure when the glass is removed in front of the diner.
This image of roulade of buttered chicken in a light garden broth with seasonal vegetables was created in the studio using continuous lighting to mimic a daylight effect. I also used a Cocoon 70 light tent, which helped diffuse the light.
This is a slice of lemon cheesecake shot on some black glass, which creates a really great reflection. I used studio flash (Profoto D1 Airs), which gave the image a much more polished look in comparison to using natural light.
