The journey of food photography through Yorkshire
If you find yourself drooling over examples of food photography in Yorkshire, then it might be worth knowing how much effort went into creating that shot.
Sure, some may think food photography would be a pretty good gig for a commercial photographer. Imagine spending your days photographing all sorts of wonderful dishes and cuisines, taking in the amazing aromas and, if you’re lucky enough, get a chance to sample this delicious food. However, producing the food for the photo is just the beginning. There is so much involved with Yorkshire food photography and a lot of planning, care and time is spent creating those perfect images.
Above all the food needs to sell to customers and it is the food photographer’s job to visually convey the smells, texture and taste to customers through the use of photography. Often the photographer will have a team onsite to assist, including a food stylist, props assistant and an art director.
The food stylist will ensure the food is set up and arranged attractively, the props assistant is in charge of ancillary items such as plates, cutlery and napkins, and the art director will bring the overall visual aspects of the shot together by envisioning what the final photograph should be. The food photographer will then ensure the lighting, exposure and settings work together in harmony to then take the shot.
With so much involved, it is no surprise professional food photography in Yorkshire is being used by many Yorkshire businesses so that it will appeal to customers and, ultimately, increase their sales. If you are in the food business, you wouldn’t use poor quality ingredients in your dishes as it would drive customers away. It’s the same with the photos you use to sell your food, which is why professional food photography is essential if you want to help your business thrive.
