There’s nothing I like better than being able to provide something a little bit special for my brides and grooms. This is Nicola and Tony on their wedding day. A couple that flew in from Australia for their wedding at Clevely Mere. Believe me, it was a lot of fun!
Of all the subjects I photograph, I tend to find food photography more demanding than most. The chef wants it to convey everything he’s put into the preparation, along with detail and texture. The ambience of the restaurant has to register too, with a feeling the food belongs in that particular setting.
How many times have we heard “If only I could afford better!”, or something similar. I had a recent conversation regarding lighting equipment, and the subject inevitably turned to cost. I don’t really subscribe to the idea expensive=better. Sure, you tend to have more features etc, but the ability to make the image in your head into a physical print is down to the skill of the photographer. A response I often use in these sort of conversations. This time I got the “It’s ok for you, you’ve got your Pro lights.”
