Food Photography Test Shoot

I had a cancelation today so I thought I’d play around, do a little testing and maybe do a little “food photography art”. I’m working on a monochromatic color pallet and maximum texture with this shot. As my career evolves, my different interests in food photography chance. What I like one day might seem old and dated the next. Hopefully, that will keep me out future “ruts” in my career…

Also, I like to playing with napkin folds in my food photography. I think that it’s such a large part of food photography and its importance is very much under-appreciated.

If you’d like to see more of my work or learn more about shooting food, you can see my portfolio at and you can see my food photography how-to site at http://www.foodportfolio/blog.

    Great photos, Michael. The texture and detail in the berries make them almost three-dimensional. They appear to leap off of the screen. I would love to see what you could do in a vineyard, photographing grape bunches.
