Studio Food photography, celebrating seafood.
As I am working on my Food photography portfolio I decided to celebrate seafood, having spent many years living in both Guernsey and Cornwall I became a big lover of Seafood. Unfortunately living in the Midlands now, it became clear to me that finding fresh seafood that hasn’t been battered to death is pretty hard. But I will continue to hunt down a fishmonger who looks after their fish so I can produce a series of photographs to portray seafood in hopefully its freshest form.\r\n\r\nFish have such beautiful markings like this mackerel and I thought keeping the composition simple and using a black background would maintain focus on the subject with no distraction.\r\n\r\nHere I have used two Bowens head’s both with standard reflector’s and honeycomb grids, the light to the front has a diffuser sock over it to soften the light slightly. A Black perspex sheet is used for the base and this gives a lovely reflection.
