Food photography, photographing a cake.

Food photography is a specialty ,it sometimes is difficult for the uninitiated to understand the complexity of lighting and preparation that is required for a successful image.
The lighting is done with a dummy subject and the final dish, know as the hero is substituted at the last minute.

    Bit dated with these techniques. Learn photoshop. You can fix lot of these
    problems in post production… Thats how I do it.

    Great video again, Philip.
    I would like to learn more about food photography on location. Just
    wondering if you produced such tutorial YouTube video? It is unrealistic
    to bring sizzling hot dishes to studio. In this case, what kind of
    lighting do you suggest best for location food photography ? external
    camera flash, strobe flash or continuous lighting ? Depends on the space
    of restaurants, the simple lighting setup, the better, I think.

    14:12 he shouldn’t be trying that, at his age this old fart could
    potentially have a heart attack. Don’t push yourself too much.

    Forget about the lighting and the photography. The longer I stare at it,
    the more I want to eat it lol

    Un tutorial sobre como fotografiar una tarta donde podéis ver el uso de la
    luz, los emisores de luz, espejos para conseguir reflejos e iluminar
    ciertas partes, está en inglés pero es muy visual.

    Hi Phillip,
    thanks for wonderful tutorial. What’s the brand and the specs of your
    studio lights? I’d love to buy a pair of continuous lights with similar
    performance.

    The stands are retort stands used in chemical labs, and the spoon is a cake
    slice.
