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.

Spring chicken

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.

Le­mon cheese­cake

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.
