There's nothing like a shoot that afterwards, leaves you feeling hungry for more. I am, of course, talking about FOOD. Food photography is such a wonderful craft because you must solely rely on the visual component to give people an idea of what the dish tastes like.... that is, until someone invents Smell-O-Vision. (Shout out to Futurama).
I recently partnered with my sister's company, Artisan Empire, to provide images of dishes from Nine Roses located in Gretna, LA. It's a restaurant known for its community style of dining. Nine Roses will soon go through a renovation, and thus, also needed to hit refresh on its website. Look out for that soon!
The shoot consisted of a simple continuous light screen right.
Banh Xeo (Vietnamese Omlette)
Chao Tom (Chargrilled shrimp paste wrapped in sugarcane)
Goi Ngo Sen (Lotus Delight Salad)
Bo Tai Chanh (Lemon medium-rare beef served with sauce)
Goi Cuon (Shrimp & Pork Spring Roll)
Cut Quay (Roasted Quail served with Steamed Buns)
Ca Kho To (Catfish in Clay Pot)
I did a quick shoot with the woman behind Nine Roses!
It would be nice to retake her portrait in the space once the renovation is complete.
