|Nicola's Kitchen Ad|
Any good restaurant needs good photographs so the food they are displaying looks as good as it tastes. John came by to ask me to photograph a breakfast menu item for this ad.
In the world of Commercial Photography - various subjects have different parameters to be met when photographing. Lighting needs to take into consideration factors like type of lighting; Lenses are specific for use creating the creamy backgrounds and blurring out parts of an image. People need a variety of techniques from posing to lighting and wardrobe. So many people say - oh - but it's just a quick snap. Glass and reflections play into the final image. Expressions on faces don't just happen - the photographer needs to know how to relate to a person to give them the look needed for a professional image.
Any good photograph - be it a portrait, a food shot, a pet - all need planning encompassing things like how the image will be used, where it will be displayed - ad in a magazine, family photographs on the fireplace, or web image in a specific pixel size.
I do more than just portraits; I photograph events, for advertising, headshots, pets and newborns too. In my Woodland Hills Studio or on location. I have photographed both chickens and eggs. They all come first for me.
So while you are thinking of eggs...go visit my friends at Nicola's. They have delicious eggs for breakfast.
